Join us to celebrate the launch of the 5th (and re-vamped) issue of SALT. Magazine, Anti-Work.
To live and to labour, or to live as labour, is to negotiate the extended processes of reproducing ourselves and our others that has come to define present modes of being. Codes and semiotics dictate our every interaction down to style, tone and gesture. However, the labour of ‘self-maintain’ occupies the interstices of both service and affective labour, requiring us to be accomplished at procuring and proffering semiotics, working in complicity with a larger set of hierarchies concerning how we perform and for whom. To examine proposed alternatives that manifest a melancholic dissatisfaction and take pains, and pleasure, to disturb the predetermined identities, systems, orders.
Contributors include; Maeve Brennan, Lloyd Corporation, Rózsa Farkas, Daisy Grove-Lafarge, Grace Harrison, Tom Hastings, Sophie Hoyle, Tommie Introna, Huw Lemmey, Kathryn O’Regan, Florence Peake, Hannah Perry, Charles Pryor, Hannah Regel, Thea Smith Jala Wahid.
Hope to see you there ;)
