Audiovisual intervention at the factory.
web project. www.proyectoenconstruccion.net
In Construction proposes to think the world of labor through individual life stories. Since the economic and political crisis that erupted in Argentina in 2001, factories recovered by their former employees emerged as the only alternative to defend the workers possessed: their ability to work. These recovered factories provided the redefinition of the role of labor and capital.
The cooperative of work Cintoplom represents a paradigm control and management by a group of workers against the loss of their jobs. The members of the cooperative recount and reflect on their experience related to work, the loss of the job, the phases until recovery of the factory and the challenges of the future.
LA CARAVANNE - A caravan and motorhome tour made in conjunction with the French Movement of Unemployed and Precarious Workers.
In 2010, Project REOCCUPATION was developed for the first time in Europe, specifically in France. The traces of memory linked to jobs long-ago allowed us to orientate ourselves within the context and continue our reflections on work, on unemployment, on stories about unemployment, and the different forms of resistance.
The project involved a caravan and motorhome tour made in conjunction with the French Movement of Unemployed and Precarious Workers. We traveled 4,000 km from north to south and from east to west, including stops at Strasbourg, Bar-le-Duc, Saint Dizier, Paris, Nanterre, Lens, Caen, Morlaix, Vannes, Le Mans, Montluçon, Montpellier, Villeneuve-sur-Lot, and Toulouse. We met with unemployed workers in regions where many factories had closed down and others were about to follow suit.
