She works hard

Seven artists and cultural workers talk about work and life in an utopian state of society. How is work organized? What is work? Is there work? And how could we work together?

Experimental Documentary, HD, 54min.

In the 21st century, work is increasingly individualised and thus corresponds to neoliberal demands.

Artists were and are part of the „avant-garde“ of these developments.
Starting from a contemporary Berlin co-working space, the filmmaker sets out to explore utopian forms of work. She talks to cultural workers who have supposedly already achieved their utopia. She witnesses a meeting in which attempts are made to bring the individual ideas together into a common utopia. „She works hard“ is a film about utopias of a society in which work is formed differently and distributed differently. An attempt to imagine ways out of precarious artistic working conditions.

A fictional documentary on utopias that seem impossible, but have the potential to unfold if only we believed in their possibility.
