A view behind the scenes: The publication “Work to do!” deals with the dynamics and emancipatory moments as well as the paradoxes and problems of self-organization. Starting point of the research and artistic projects is the occupation with the change of working conditions and their organizational structures as well as the context Zurich itself. With the artists bankleer, Saskia Holmkvist, Andrea Knobloch, Folke Köbberling/Martin Kaltwasser, Andreja Kulunčić, RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co) und Mirjam Wirz projects were developed that ought to permit sustainability and a discussion in public spheres. Despite a concrete reference to the situation in Switzerland, the projects go beyond and are concerned with developments and courses of action, which are relevant also in other places. Results and sketches to the projects are summarized in this publication: Visual material as well as reflections presents the projects, their developments and conceptual approaches, as well as the production conditions.Hence the publication would like to provide a view behind the scenes of art production and at the same time contribute to the discussion about artistic practice.Texts by theoreticians, activists and curators furthermore comment on the question of working conditions and self-organisation as well as the levels of research and production processes.
