How are artificial intelligence, automation, the gig economy and hotly-debated political proposals such as Universal Basic Income impacting the future of work and the potential for a post-work future? Where and how is labour invisible? What and who do we think of when discussing work – can non-human agents, such as plants or robots, work? The Work Marathon will engage artists, sociologists, anthropologists, writers, musicians, designers, architects, scientists and philosophers on the complex and timely subjects of work, labour, automation and leisure in the context of current cultural, political, economic and environmental debates.
