-----------------------------------

Reproductive labour is understood as the total of unrecognized and often uncompensated work in a capitalist system that, on a daily basis, cares for and maintains others. Reproductive labour or „care work“ is associated with the upbringing of children, the care for elders, for people who are not able to work, self-care, healthcare, housework and sex work. The division between productive and „unproductive work“ goes back to the economist Adam Smith and was criticized by the international feminist movement „Wages for Housework“ in the Seventies that demanded payment for the unwaged domestic work mostly performed by women in the family. While this is still an issue in contemporary feminism, nowadays the focus is shifting towards the low-waged labor performed by mostly female migrant workers and therefore draws the attention more to an intersectional discrimination of gender and race in the work field (Denise Silva de Ferreira, Evelyn Nakano Glenn, Chandra Mohanty).

In the seminar we will investigate „what it means to inscribe social practices which do not produce market commodities into the wage-form, more narrowly, and into the value-form more broadly“ as Marina Vishmidt put it. Alongside the controversy arising from reproductive labour, we will look into different artistic practices, such as Friedl Dicker-Brandeis, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Tina Girouard, Senga Nengudi and Jeremy Wade next to others.

During the class we will visit the art collection of the Angewandte and look for artworks associated with the field of social reproduction. The students will explore materials and artistic methods that are associated with the routines of daily life, such as repetition, self-care, care for others, interaction with objects, digital devices and robots.
