Concept & Realisation: FRANCESCA BRIA, TORA KROGH, LIZE DE CLERCQ
Precarity literally means being forced to beg and pray to keep one's job.
It is the exclusion of whole generations and soon the rest of society
from social rights.
'We are the precariat. We are hireable on demand, available on call, exploitable
at will, an fireable at whim. We have become skillfull jugglers of jobs
and contorsionists of flexibility. We are agitating with a common strategie
to share our fights.'
The compilation of 17 videos intends to connect different networks of
precarious workers across the continents. It is a toolbox to investigate
about the increasing precarization of our existence.
