Here an amazing video by "Tasaday and Centrale dell`Arte" I think their introduction on the video cassette cover sleeve is enough.
A big thanx to PuppyBarf for the video conversion from VHS to digital format and another big thanx to Babs for this english translation.
Bloom – Mezzago (Milan)
Identity, exploded subjectivity no longer composes itself in work: work is not a space of existence because existence belongs to the spectacle of consumables. Identity must be looked for in free time, the supplementary time of the work-time, and feigns itself in the mirror image of the consumables consumed in one’s free time.
Free time doesn’t exist in work society.
Free time is the logical continuation of work, where one consumes the goods produced by someone else so that someone else can work too.
Free time is made of consumables, work is the time for the production of consumables. Consumables-time is off.
The society of consumables-time exists as truth along with the meaning it produces.
The way out, the impossible truth produces itself in a quiz, in a dream to be scratched, in the possibility to conquer consumables knowing the right answer, the one and only answer at the right time.
We are sorry, time’s off.
The virtual condition is a wheel of fortune always on the move. The right answer is: stop the wheel.
Time is no consumables, it is desire. The right answer is: free the time from work. Work is a necessity. The right answer is: let’s take control of our lives.
OUR JOURNEY BEYOND THE TIME-OFF DOESN’T NEED ANY COPYRIGHT
PLAGIARISM IS NECESSARY, PROGRESS IMPLIES IT.
