Worker’s Club

How do artists and workers – respectively – view their working conditions and relationships?

The InCompany artists’ collective wanted to create a dialogue between artists and industrial or company employees. They wanted to examine how working relationships and conditions influence our perception of the world.

InCompany began with a Mobile Workers’ Club, an environment in which artists and company employees could relax and get to know one another. They reflected on ‘work’ with the aid of a range of exercises and role play. This Workers’ Club was inspired by the designs and ideas of Alexander Rodchenko’s Workers’ Club, active in the 1920s.

The Mobile Workers’ Club will have met on several occasions. After the meetings, the material acquired has been incorporated into a performance. After seeing this performance, you might look at the ‘working man or woman’ with new eyes.
