In this workshop we will discuss two different approaches to the issue of work by feminist scholars, Silvia Federici and Kathi Weeks. Specifically the workshop will explore
Federici’s Wages Against Housework (1975) and the third chapter of Kathi Weeks’ book The Problem With Work: Feminism, Marxism, Antiwork Politics and Postwork Imaginaries (2011). These texts will serve us as a starting point to discuss political strategies for self-organization and struggle against unpaid cultural and artistic labor.

The workshop requires that the participants read both texts in advance.

Katja Praznik is an Assistant Professor at State University of New York at Buffalo, where she teaches in the Arts Management Program. She holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of Ljubljana. Her research focuses on the politics of unpaid artistic labor, and political economy in the arts during the demise of the welfare state. As a dramaturge she worked with several dance artists, such as Maja Delak, Matija Ferlin and Iztok Kovač. She was the editor-in-chief of the performing arts journal Maska (2007–2009) and co-authored the book Chronotopographies of dance: Two Inquiries (EMANAT, 2010). From 2009 to 2011 she was engaged in improvement of working conditions of independent cultural producers at Asociacija, Association of Cultural NGOs and Freelancers in Ljubljana. Currently she is working on a book project Remuneration of artistic labor: a transcontinental comparative analysis, a study of cultural policy regulation and grassroots artists’ initiatives concerning unpaid artistic labor in three different environments all ridden by the process of neoliberalization: post-socialist Slovenia, post-unified Germany and post-crisis US.
