Exhibition | Playbour: Work, Pleasure, Survival

What would it mean to value trees like we value human labour? Would you like to monetize your social relations?
Learn from hostile designs? Take part in (unwitting) data extractions in exchange for public services?

Examining the way that the boundaries between ‘play’ and ‘labour’ have become increasingly blurred, this summer, Playbour - Work, Pleasure, Survival, will transform Furtherfieldld into an immersive environment comprising a series of games. Visitors are asked to become "players" and test the operations of the real-world, and, in the process, experience how forms of play and labour feed mechanisms of work, pleasure, and survival.

Each game in Furtherfield simulates an experience of how techniques of gamification, automation, and surveillance, are applied to the everyday in order to capture all forms of existence.

Presenting new artworks by Marija Bozinovska Jones, Maz Hemming, Robert Gallager, Michael Straeubig, Cassie Thornton, Arjun Harrison-Mann, and more. Curated By Dani Admiss.
