Jeremy Deller, No More Work, Zeeuws Museum, Middelburg, 27 April 2019 – 3 May 2020

No More Work

The current exhibition at the Zeeuws Museum is about work: in the past, now and in the future. This summer, the museum is reaching out into the province with two temporary projects at locations in Flushing and Breskens.

The Zeeuws Museum imagines a world in which work is no longer the main element that structures our lives and our environment. Work is changing rapidly for us all: flexible working has become the norm and machines are increasingly supplementing or replacing manpower in more and more professions. It is clear that work will play a different role for young and old in the future. This exhibition explores the meaning of work through eight works of art, each of which employs a different strategy for dealing with the changing work landscape: calling for resistance, attempting to hack the system, preparing us for a life after work or keeping the memory of work alive through rituals.

The exhibition includes works by James Beckett, Jeremy Deller, Janne van Gilst, Manon van Hoeckel, Christian Jankowski, Lisette Olsthoorn, Helge Prinsen and Ottonie von Roeder.
