BOOK RELEASE: The Projectariat ABC's. On The Misery of a Project-Driven Life
Meeting with Kuba Szreder
"ABC Projektariatu" cover, design by Grzegorz Laszuk
We would like to invite you to a meeting with Kuba Szreder, author of the book “ABC Projektariatu. O nędzy projektowego życia” [“The Projectariat ABC's. On The Misery of a Project-Driven Life”] - an account of the lives of those who have nothing except their willingness to join a project.
The book, written by an (in)dependent curator and theoretician who has been working and living in a project for the past fifteen years, is a record of the murmur of the project machine which, while arranging our life, stays on the side of our field of vision.
“The Projectariat ABC's” is an account of a journey through a world of networks, where everything is dissolved in a continuous “interproject” circulation and where no position is given to you forever.
At the same time the book is a meditation on the possibilities of resisting against the project mechanisms. It asks the question of how to carry out personal projects that follow the ideals of equality, self-governance or solidarity when survival in the project world requires actions that go entirely against those ideals.
The book will be released on April 28th, published by Fundacja Bęc Zmiana / www.beczmiana.pl.
Organized by: Fundacja Bęc Zmiana, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw
