Work, Body, Leisure


People and work in the future: the Dutch Pavilion



Work, Body, Leisure explores the spatial configurations, living conditions, and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive changes in labor, its ethos, and its conditions. The Netherlands has been and continues to be a testing ground where the future of labor is reimagined. Published in conjunction with the Dutch Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Work, Body, Leisure analyzes spatial arrangements and protocols molded for the interaction between humans and machines, spaces that challenge traditional distinctions between work and leisure, the ways in which evolving notions of labor have categorized and defined bodies, and the legal, cultural, and technical infrastructures that enable their exploitation, with the aim of fostering new forms of creativity and responsibility within the architectural field in response to emerging technologies of automation.With contributions by Amal Alhaag, AMO, Pier Vittorio Aureli & Maria Shéhérazade Giudici, Jonathan Beller, Beatriz Colomina, Silvia Federici, Ayesha Hameed, Femke Herregraven, Het Nieuwe Instituut, Markus Krajewski, Egbert Alejandro Martina, Francesco Marullo, Victor Muñoz Sanz, Constant Nieuwenhuys, Simone C.
