Developed in collaboration with textile artist Dee Harte and through a long series of history workshops with local women/ex-factory workers, a number of union banners were designed and fabricated out fabric from the sewing factory. From the history of women's labour and union participation to the history of computation, the banners address the future of work in a post- industrial society. Through declarative statements and technical drawing, the banners perform a protest yet to come;
NO TO ALOGRITHMIC STULTIFICATION/NO TO ALGORITHMIC GOVERNMENTALITY
Reflecting on the future of work in an automatic society, the banners will be hung on the windows of the RECDP on the 21st September.
