12 December – 9 March, 2014

FACT reaffirms once again the innovative nature of its program with Time & Motion: Redefining Working Life. The exhibition deals with the evermore current and urgent issue of labour, developing a highly interactive navigation for the viewer. Hybrid lives is a space designed for the viewers to sit down and work, interact with each other or just observe. The two videos Workers Leaving the Factory, by Harun Farocki, and Workers Leaving the Googleplex, by Andrew Norman Wilson, draw their inspiration from filmic history, the former adopting a cinematic approach whilst the latter a more personal and documentary one. In iPaw, a robot dog scrolls through apps on a tablet. Labourers of Love is a video piece, which has been produced with Amazon Mechanical Turk (mturk.com), including user-produced pornographic material. Together with other equally thought-provoking works, the show quite diversely enters the increasingly problematic intersections of time, labour, leisure and new technologies.
