OFFICE WORK // Meeting About Nothing

  • StoreFrontLab 337 Shotwell St San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

OFFICE WORK // Carrie Sinclair Katz, Jon Gourley, and The Big Conversation Space (Niki Korth and Clemence de Montgolfier)

Office Work is a social practice project that repurposes the vocabulary and technology of the office and of contemporary art in order to facilitate encounters with the human side of work, the absurd side of labor, and the creative side of knowledge.

After Samuel Beckett wrote "Nothing is more real than nothing," (Malone Dies 1959), the (f)utility of modern office meetings has undergone a dramatic shift. Or has it? In efforts to analyze the current state of Nothing, an emergency meeting has been called, which includes presentations by Daniel Yovino, Niki Korth, and other experts on Nothing. Your attendance at this meeting is neither required nor optional.
