  • Unboxing the Hidden Labor of Saving Lives and Saving Capitalism

    Par
    To maintain the Western phantasm that ‘capitalism is an intelligent computer,’ the hidden labor of those whose hands silently uphold it is framed as heroic. This promotes sacrificing oneself for ‘the (operating) system.’ In this SILENT WORKS interview Magdalena Taube and Krystian Woznicki talk to Sydney-based scholar-activist Angela Mitropoulos about thinking labor in a different way.
  • Why the ‘Robotization of Care Work in Japan’ is a Misleading Myth

    Par
    While Japan is promoting robots in the care industry – from Human Support Robots to ‘emotional robots’ – the realities of human labor in this field are being blocked out. In this SILENT WORKS interview, Magdalena Taube and Krystian Woznicki talk to social historian Eiji Oguma about how the ‘corona crisis’ reveals some discomforting truths about the ‘robotization of care work in Japan.’
  • Health Protection in Industry 4.0 and Human Labor as a Disruptive Factor

    Par
    Will governments and businesses use the ‘corona crisis’ as an opportunity to transform the economic system so that it meets human needs? Or will the shutdown be used to radicalize capitalism? In this SILENT WORKS interview, Magdalena Taube and Krystian Woznicki talk to sociologist Kerstin Guhlemann, who conducts research on the interface between hospitality, Industry 4.0 and health protection.
  • Learning as Labor: Re-Inventing ‘the School’ Along the Lines of ‘the Factory’

    Par
    The COVID-19-induced security measures are, last but not least, about minimizing the risk that humans play for ‘frictionless capitalism.’ This means securitizing ‘our’ vulnerability and contagiousness. In this SILENT WORKS interview, Magdalena Taube and Krystian Woznicki talk to Berlin-based critic Tom Holert about control practices at the interface between the factory and the school.
  • What the “Corona Crisis” Means for Mobile Laborers in India – and the World at Large

    Par
    India’s shutdown at the end of March was followed by an ‘exodus’ from cities like Delhi, where masses of day laborers and migrant workers were working and now had to return ‘home.’ Is this a mere sign of disaster? Or does it also signal an opportunity for social justice struggles? In this SILENT WORKS interview Magdalena Taube and Krystian Woznicki talk to Chennai-based scientist Sujatha Byravan.
