STOP WORKING!: A VIDEO JAM
March 23, 2007 6.30pm

Goldsmiths College – Laurie Grove Baths

During Franco Berardi’s visit to the Micropolitics Group in February, he narrated the worker’s strikes in 1977 Italy as a ‘refusal of unhappiness’. The question was asked: what are our options today?

Join us for an open enquiry into the possibilities for refusal of work (and unhappiness) as we search for inspirations and celebrate
the end of term. It’s an open mic, so bring a clip from your favourite work refusal video.

So far, the menu includes fragments from:

La Classe Operaia Va In Paradiso (Working Class Goes to Paradise)
Director: Elio Petri
1971

Surplus: Terrorized into Being Consumers
Director: Eric Gandini
2003

Lavorare Con Lentezza

I soliti ignoti
