COMPANY. Fotografien und Fragmente über das Arbeiten Photographs and Fragments on Working
The company as the basic cell of production in capitalism: the artistic research
of Beatrix Zobl and Wolfgang Schneider investigates the "secret working day" in an industrial metalworking company. Apart
from figures and careers, what can be said about work, about that activity that occupies a large proportion of our lives?
In photographs, videos, and interviews with workers, the two artists look for signs and structures. As this proceeds,
their own activities are also revealed as work.
"COMPANY. Photographs and Fragments on Working" refers to the original
meaning of the term: to the company amongst which bread is shared (Lat. cum pane), i.e. the society the rules of which are
given but nevertheless have yet to be determined.
Beatrix Zobl, Wolfgang Schneider. Work at the interface of artistic
and scientific methods and their practice.
