Synthesis

The Laboratorio del no hacer is a workshop against work.

A collaborative research and practice project on alternatives to self-exploitation.

It is an artistic piece in itself in the form of an experimental workshop.

 

Introducction

The collective fantasy installed in the foundations of our cultural framework places work as the center of our existences. This has led this concept to high levels of perversion. Doing to accumulate, to leave a trail, to grow (very well, it is not known whether in width or length), go through overproduction and overexploitation, which leads to pettiness and idiotic work

After a reading and subsequent collective discussion of a selection of texts, as well as the visualization of diverse material, we reflect on the possibility of a life of work without work, that is to say, without personal costs: we refuse to work per se. A maximum of 11 people will create their own project based on this conceptualization in which doing less can be doing more.

This workshop is the empirical demonstration of the work done without doing. That is, leaving the asphyxiating parameters and the fast pace imposed by a society of consumption and overproduction.

The participants will publicly present their creation, their own piece not worked, in the last session in the Blue Project Foundation.

 

Goals

The workshop will work these concepts: stop and observe to create. From here the objectives of the workshop will arise. They are divided into five as follows:

Objective 1

To generate a constructive feedback between the participants on their active life and develop the idea of ​​not doing. Unite a series of concepts such as the dilemma of wage labor and the ability to not doing.

Objective 2

To explore the possibilities of standing and stopping. To approach philosophers and sociologists such as Paul Lafargue, Bob Black, Hannah Arendt and Noam Chomsky. To familiarize yourself with the concepts of work and labor, action and speech and play.

Objective 3

To meet other artists who work on the subject and give way to conscious and constructive observation.

We will work on artistic concepts of not doing with Natsume Soseki, John Cage, Carole Douillard, Luz Broto and Lee Lozano, among others.

Objective 4

To create from your own experience (stop and observe) an artistic work of not doing, using for it the different media and formats in which each one feels more comfortable.

Objective 5

To experiment with the workshop format as an artistic process.
