I'm glad to present A CRITICAL at MANIFESTA 11
What People Do for Money – that is the existential question addressed by Manifesta 11. It deals with a topic which concerns all of us. Why do some people earn more than others – for the same work? Why are men often quicker than women to climb the corporate ladder? Why is social status still measured by one’s profession and position? Is the passion with which “workaholics” pursue their jobs simply a pretext for their alienation and exploitation? And there is more: how do you go about finding work in a country that is foreign to you? And how does a fully digitised world work in which robots have finally replaced us – and labour as a concept has become obsolete?

Remember Nature is a campaign involving a team of partners, including Serpentine Gallery, Central Saint Martins in London and University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.
Remember Nature is a collaborative project directed by artist and political activist Gustav Metzger, will take place on 4 November, with arts practitioners around the world encouraged to participate in a Day of Action to highlight the topic of extinction. Metzger’s call to action urges arts professionals and students from all disciplines to create new work to ‘Remember Nature’, addressing global issues such as extinction, climate change and environmental pollution. A launch event will take place at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design and at art schools nationwide on the day.
Metzger’s work, including his involvement in the Serpentine’s Extinction Marathon in 2014 and his acclaimed exhibition, Decades 1959 – 2009 at the Serpentine Gallery in 2009, addresses climate change and its catastrophic effects.
“The art, architecture and design world needs to take a stand against the ongoing erasure of species – even where there is little chance of ultimate success. It is our privilege and our duty to be at the forefront of the struggle. There is no choice but to follow the path of ethics into aesthetics. We live in societies suffocating in waste. Our task is to remind people of the richness and complexity in nature; to protect nature as far as we can and by doing so art will enter new territories that are inherently creative.” Gustav Metzger, 2015.
