The selection of artworks drawn from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation explores the question of artistic representation of today’s ever more precarious work spheres within advanced economies. The dramatic but also humorous “work histories”, as narrated or represented by Julian Rosefeldt, Allan Sekula, Andreas Siekmann, Los Carpinteros, Anetta Mona Chisa and Lucia Tkácová result from radical shifts in production and work processes, such as the outsourcing of services to migrant workers, often “sans papiers”, and from larger social re-stratifications reflecting the changing orders of social representation. These histories are the symptoms of transitional states, where larger, planetary readjustments create localized distortions and conditions of morbidity and entire sectors of skilled labor are at risk of displacement or disappearance.> >
