Presentations and discussion will look at how strategies of art production and distribution can inform and support social movements related to labour and visibility.
Contributors are: Justice for Domestic Workers, Andrea Francke, and Werker Magazine (Marc Roig Blesa and Rogier Delfos)
Following the discussion there will be a screening of Nightcleaners by Berwick Street Collective the Starr Auditorium at Tate Modern.
