Suck the Living Labour

Pil and Galia Kollectiv 4 September — 16 November 2013

Pil and Galia Kollectiv’s project explores geriatric vampirism. Austerity measures have indebted the young and the old through the privatisation of education and health. These age groups have been thrown into a relationship of mutual dependency and conflicting interests.

Working towards a new film, the artists are hosting two events at Ort Gallery including a reading seminar on Marxist demonolgy to encourage both younger and older residents of the community to attend and get involved in the discussion and project.

Birmingham’s industrial, concrete architecture will be the perfect backdrop for a discussion of work in a post-industrial society.
