Campus of the University of Vienna, 30 August – 3 September 2021

exhibition display: wood, reinforcement fabric, bast thread, cotton weight bags, 260 x 100 x 120 cm, 2021

The exhibition ‘Stories of Work and Coercion: Scientific Contributions Depicted in Illustrations’ intends to specifically point out the potential of the text-image relation for a multimedia historiography by introducing the illustrations of Dariia Kuzmych, Monika Lang and Tim Robinson. The visuals follow the scenarios developed by Anamarija Batista and Corinna Peres, based on academic texts by anthropologists and historians that were presented at the conference “Reconceptualising Wage Labour” 2020 in Budapest. The exhibition display, a rotating wooden drum, was developed by Anna Hofbauer.
