„Labor Relations”: the first presentation of the international collection of contemporary art that has been built up at Wrocław Contemporary Museum since 2011. The exhibition addresses the issue of today’s “labor relations”. The phrase refers to the relations between the employer and the employee whose current dynamics is determined by the very same processes that influence the global markets: colonialism, industrialisation and capitalism. They also shape the political landscape, migrant destinations, and the state of the body and the mind.
Entry to the exhibition tour is free. We look forward to welcoming you!
