Critical Camp #3 – 'Reclaiming Labour Autonomy' is often regarded as an ideal, although self-sufficiency can also be seen as a kind of rehearsal for post-apocalyptic life. Above all, though, it involves a lot of hard work. But how do we understand ‘work’ outside of the system of money and wage labour? Can humans ever extract themselves from the technological matrix? Is the idyll of self-sufficiency merely the mirror image of capitalist individualism?
In an attempt to understand what we would really be letting ourselves in for if we went ‘back to the land’, this Critical Camp will explore the relation between labour and freedom, and will
involve discussion and participative activities revolving around manual labour and technology, and the difficulty of deciding where one ends and the other begins. Phone 01326 21811 to book a place.
