GJ Media: Katja Praznik


In this conversation, Sasha Pevak and Katja Praznik discuss their common interest in the struggle for the improvement of working conditions in the arts, and, more broadly, why we should consider the work we do in the arts as a form of labor. Touching upon the two participants' professional backgrounds and also upon the shared cultural awareness of labor in socialist contexts, the conversation is raising the questions of how to surpass the ongoing contradictory situation in the art systems that largely continue to exploit the labor of art workers while at the same time enjoying, at least in some areas, the image of being politically progressive and ethical.
