BÜCHS’N’RADIO in May 2013 presents the work of INTERNDINNER, a research group invited at Büchsenhausen by Kevin Dooley.
The artists of INTERNDINNER re-stage working conditions in the cultural field. The event forms the basis of a radio-phonic format, then broadcast in the context of Büchs’n’Radio on Radio Freirad, 105.9 MHz, on 6th May 2013: IT WILL BE A LOT OF WORK, BUT NICE WORK* – Against Precarious Work in the Cultural Sector!.
Tapping into the waves of often shocking and offensive offers of precarious work, INTERNDINNER will make creative and rebellious use of this rhetoric as part of their project of challenging the unpaid and exploited situation of cultural workers and exploring possibilities for collective action. (The title is a quote from a full-time job announcement offering €300 per month.)
INTERNDINNER is a research project that aims to clarify the actual amount and quality of labour in the cultural field produced by unpaid and underpaid workers, or the so-called interns.
INTERNDINNER aims to make the backgrounds to work transparent: “It will be a lot of work, but nice work ” was produced upon the invitation of a fellow at Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen. At least 5 people from INTERNDINNER developed the piece in various workshops and meetings during March and April, receiving expenses of 300 EUR. The money was distributed equally between those five people. No interns participated in the event in Büchsenhausen; an employee of the Künstlerhaus worked voluntarily for 3.5 hours without pay to edit this broadcast. Until March 2013, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen employed an intern for a few hours once a week for the purpose of cataloguing books. The internship was offered as practical experience that would count towards his or her degree credits.
