Four new artists’ films that explore contemporary working lives in the middle of England.

Made in Derby, Thrapston, Birmingham and Bolsover, the WORK films consider: the rhythms of a care worker’s day; traditional and new rural working lives – farming, forestry, and international logistics; Birmingham’s Trade Union Resource Centre film archive and collective activism; untold stories of the impact on individual lives of post-industrial economic change.

Developed and produced over two years, WORK is a collaboration between: Animate ProjectsQUAD, Derby; Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, Thrapston, Northamptonshire; Vivid Projects, Birmingham; and Junction Arts, Chesterfield.

Along with the films, the website has interviews with the artists, two essays about WORK by Helen De Witt and Adam Pugh, and a report by Vivienne Reiss on the way the artists engaged workers in their projects. A film by Christopher Bevan about WORK will be online later this year.

The WORK films have been screening in the places they were made, including a premiere at QUAD and in the village hall at Titchmarsh, near Thrapston. A gallery exhibition at Vivid Projects in Birmingham and screenings at Bolsover and Fineshade Wood, near Corby, have been postponed because of the Covid-19 crisis. 

The WORK website is designed by Daniel Hawley-Lingham at Urban Fugitive.

WORK is supported by Jerwood Arts and using public funding by Arts Council England.
