Tomorrow night, Wednesday June 12th, we are going to be having a in-depth discussion at Interference Archive about representations of labor. Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative recently produced a collection of two dozen large-scale prints relating to labor as part of their exhibition, Uprisings: Images of Labor. Artists were tasked with creating graphic works which both interpret and respond to the current state of work and labor organizing.
Interference Archive and members of Justseeds invite you to help us unpack and critique these prints. We ask: are these images are effective at representing labor and work in the 21st century? Can they help mobilize and organize workers or the working class? How does one create a poster that compels a viewer to think about a subject? Or to act on it?
