Aims and Scope
The company as the basic cell of production in capitalism: the artistic research of Beatrix Zobl and Wolfgang Schneider investigates the "secret working day" in an industrial metalworking company. Apart from figures and careers, what can be said about work, about that activity that occupies a large proportion of our lives?
In photographs, videos, and interviews with workers, the two artists look for signs and structures. As this proceeds, their own activities are also revealed as work.
"COMPANY. Photographs and Fragments on Working" refers to the original meaning of the term: to the company amongst which bread is shared (Lat. cum pane), i.e. the society the rules of which are given but nevertheless have yet to be determined.
