En Quête des marges fluctuantes - Brussels Days 21

GUY WOUETÉ

During the three Brussels Days, the Cameroon artist Guy Woueté and performers Medina Tokalic and Bela Juttner, hold up banners in the public spaces. The banners that contain thoughts and texts, some of which were written by Woueté himself, fluctuate between poetic quotations and political claims/slogans. During En quête des marges fluctuantes, the bodies of performers are put to work in public spaces for eight hours a day, thus challenging how passers-by view work and working conditions.

 

What does 'work' mean today? What does statutory working time mean in a society where the people who work the most do not always have a job? With this sit-in performance, Guy Woueté refutes the well-known motto 'work more in order to earn more' and considers forms of visibility for those who work most without being benefiting from the 12 protective mechanisms associated with having a job. A situation that has been exacerbated over the last months of the pandemic, and against which no action has been planned.
