Where do we work? And what does the space of precarious work look like?
The office building, the factory with its time clock and assembly line are spatial images from times of Fordist efficiency and discipline. But what do the post-Fordist work spaces of today’s “flat” hierarchies, flexible cooperation and differentiated “creativity” look like?
Buildings and images of work in architecture and urbanism, cinema and the Internet, photography and philosophy: this book brings together material and media spaces, as well as historical and theoretical approaches, to explore the relationship of space and image to contemporary forms of work.
