What will the future of labor look like? How will disruptive changes in labor ethos and conditions influence spatial configurations, living conditions, and notions of the human body? How can new forms of creativity and responsibility within the architectural field respond to emerging technologies of automation? Floris Alkemade, Lara Schrijver en Marina Otero Verzier will start a conversation around the theme WORK, BODY, LEISURE and the ambitions for the 2018 Dutch Pavilion, commissioned by Het Nieuwe Instituut at the 16th Venice Biennale for Architecture, that will be held 24 May to 25 November 2018.

The event marks the start of a conversation on the theme WORK, BODY, LEISURE and the overall theme of the Biennale FREESPACE, that addresses the relation between architecture and society. Stretching out before, during and beyond the Biennale the conversations mark a committed collaboration between Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Creative Industries Fund NL to endorse Dutch designers and researchers in the field of architecture to an international audience. It serves to launch the first of three Open Calls, jointly organized by Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Creative Industries Fund NL, in order to select projects for the extended public program of the Dutch Pavilion in 2018.
