I just received my copy of Work Book, a risograph magazine featuring 18 artists and collaborative teams, and a series of online artist features, whose work addresses labor, leisure and it’s cultural intersections with art production.
This is part of The Tool Book Project, which was conceived of in the wake of the 2016 US presidential election as a way to connect and provide a platform for artists, writers, and cultural producers, and to raise funds for social and environmental justice groups that are made vulnerable under this administration. Now, three years in, Work Book, the third volume of The Tool Book Project, considers the future of institutional critique, direct social action, how our daily labor and leisure intersect with the ways we relate, resist, and create, and what can we glean from revisiting past Art and Labor movements.
