Work Book by Kristina Bengtsson and Kevin Malcolm (editors)
- Publisher Hour Editions
- Year 2015
- Location Amsterdam
Work Book was produced for Alt_Cph 2015, the tenth edition of Copenhagen’s art fair focusing on international artist-run platforms for contemporary art.
For the fair Hour Editions invited 12 artists to compile a reader based on the themes set out in the Not not work project, namely the complexities of labour, work and production in the contemporary art practice. Existing somewhere between a scrapbook and the conventional anthology of academic writing one might expect, the book was assembled and bound during the three days of the fair by the visitors. A printed copy of the reader was made available to those who participated in an unwaged internship at Hour Editions for the duration of the production of their copy of the book (approx. 5 minutes). The production of the book was thus effectively outsourced to a near-constant flow of micro-interns.
