MTalks—Eugenia Lim & APHIDS present ‘On Work and Mobility’

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

10 Dec 2019

Join artist Eugenia Lim and leading thinkers and advocates from across the fields of labour and industrial relations, gig workers’ rights and the arts in a panel that explores working in the digital age, and the impact of the gig economy on our relationships, rights, creativity and bodies. Speakers include Sarah Kaine, Associate Professor, School of Business, UTS; artist and performance maker Roshelle Fong; and former Foodora worker Josh Klooger.

Combining dance, synchronised bike-riding and performance, Easy Riders is a collaborative choreography that explores the nature of work and human connection in the digital age. Developed and co-created with workers of the gig economy (independent artists and ‘independent contractors’ for companies such as Uber, Deliveroo and Airtasker), Easy Riders asks: how much of our daily lives should be lived by others? What are the moral and social implications of outsourcing? And who do we become once we’re fully outsourced and at our most ‘efficient’ – Übermenschen or über-assholes? Easy Riders is inspired by the pioneering work of artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles and her ‘work ballets’.
