to job + to study: what artists do for money?, 2016
Exhibition at LE FOYER Müllerstrasse 57, 8004 Zurich/ch, June 06 – 12
Most of the time students have to work in order to finance a part or all of their study and living costs. Therefore, they hardly ever have enough time to study or the everyday life becomes so fragmented that studying comes off badly. The fact that some students receive money from their parents, contribute their ownsavings, or receive scholarships, cannot hide the fact that numerous students must work to earn money. For the first time in 2010 and now in 2016 on the occasion of the MANIFESTA 11 with the motto “What People do for Money: some joint-ventures”, students and alumni have appropriated this subject matter and realized eight new video essays under the title: “to job + to study: what artists do for money?”.
With video essays of Rita Capaul, Yannick Fuhrer, Yvonne Good, Silvia Popp, Micha and Stefani Reichenbach, Judith Weidmann, Karin Wiesendanger and the participation of Juliette Russbach + Sarah Sandler, students of the program WORK.MASTER, HEAD Genève. A project of the F+F School of Art and Design, with Marie-Antoinette Chiarenza, member of RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co).
