This project deals with the subject of work in a variety of different ways: as a method, as a set of products, as a reflection of a process with the idea to discover the unknown parts in artistic production.With an initial residency (read: laboratory) we locked ourselves up in a big studio space for a period of a little bit more than two weeks. There was nothing more than a first keyword: “work”, a lot of different materials and the concept to film whatever happens.Every morning started with a big breakfast meeting, discussing what we did, how we might do and if we can see already what will be the outcome in the end. Within the laboratory we created a huge visual archive, consisting of video material, sound pieces, electronic music compositions, lyrics and other text fragments as well as a big amount of images.We managed to melt together the frontstage and backstage of artistic production, revealing moments of doubt, fragility and boredness within artistic creation.We realized that our artistic process has the same or even a bigger value than the final product, so we decided to actively turn the process into the product. What this exactly means is what we’re about to find out…
