Pursuing work

  Walk in Progress with Oliver Schürer, Rhona Byrne u.a.
  Concept: Markus Bogensberger and Gabu Heindl

  Factory, depot, working-class estate: powerful 
images of work from days of yore. But what are 
the architectures for networked, immaterial or 
affective labor like? 'Atypical employment', 
'outsourcing' and 'franchising', teleworking, 
labour migration - these are the buzzwords for a 
changed world of work, directly impacting life 
concepts, daily routines and urban modes of use. 
At the same time, the city itself is changing, 
too, with inner cities, for example, becoming 
tourist service zones and industrial regions 
becoming Creative Cities. Urban discourse defines 
new types of city names: Network City, Knowledge 
City, Serve City, Surf City, etc. -  where do we 
find such fragments within a Central European 
medium-size city like Graz?
