New Ways of Doing Nothing - Vanessa Joan Mueller
Productivity and growth are the philosophical premises of the present day. Working processes are being optimized to increase efficiency, working hours are being deregulated until the distinction between work and leisure time disappears. Artistic work seems to follow other criteria, but in this field too professionalisation and self-optimisation are on the rise. But what would happen if 'doing nothing' or 'inaction' were to become a source of inspiration for a refusal to produce.
