We are all far from equal in the eyes of the labour market. Huge portions of work carried out in spaces outside the realm of what is deemed valuable is rendered of little or no monetary value. Domestic labourers, art workers, migrants struggle to prove their financial worth while other white collar professions receive bloated wages for their bullshit jobs. WORKABLE encourages a critical examination of structures of labour. What is considered as work? How do we give real-world meaning to the fictitious construct of value, and how do we assign that value as a measure of the roles performed within spaces of work and non-work? What causes insecure labour relations and thus financial anxiety? WORKABLE activates the Huidenclub as a space for critical exploration of the structures of waged and unwaged labour, and the quantification of human and monetary value which underpin distributions of wealth and divisions of labour within society.
