About

Rhubaba is delighted to present All in a Day’s Work, a listening lounge curated by Andrea Zarza. The lounge invites visitors to engage with curated playlists of archival and contemporary sound recordings. These recordings explore themes related to ‘labours of love’, such as artistic, affective and domestic labour.

The concept of ‘labour of love’ was first used by radical feminist Betsy Warrior in 1969 to ironically describe the endless chores performed by women within the home. The concept has been recently revisited to critically theorise modes of contemporary labour that exploit one’s desire and drive for self-fulfilment. By blurring the boundaries between leisure and work, work becomes an endless pursuit. Individual listening stations within the gallery space will enable listeners to take different (physical) positions in which they will explore the struggle of what is all in a day’s work.
