Gig is Up - How New Technologies Are Reshaping the Future of Work is
an exhibition about cloud workers and forms of distributed and outsourced
labour: the so-called ‘gig economy’. Online platforms – from Airbnb and Uber to
Fiverr – which facilitate flexible working, suggest that it is possible to live
more freely, more productively, and more profitably. Better even, they promise
that you can be more independent and live according to your own rules. But it’s
mostly a false promise. In the end, these platforms are profit-seeking
works in this exhibition don’t just show the absurdities and delights of
cloud-based labour, but also suggest ways to actualize the potential of the
cloud-producing technologies to different, unexpected ends.*
The Gig is Up is on view until December 18 and is curated by Sarah Cook and V2_.
