Leisure, as a complement to labour, bares confusing elements in relation to its function. Having fun entails reproducing moments that might not be fun, but become enjoyable precisely because they exist outside the work context. Current forms of leisure seem to increasingly perform tasks of labour or are performed at the workplace with colleagues. In this context, especially office work, the environment starts to mimic domestic scenes. Commuting back and forth from home-office to office-home, a mobile device keeps the connection to all colleagues aka the work-family. Simultaneously, that same device enables a bleeding of labour into ‘free time’. Be the boss of your own hamburger stand, while you travel back home from an exhausting day of work.
For a one-day event the Mycological Twist (Eloise Bonneviot and Anne de Boer) invites you back to the Survival Game ‘Rust’, to examine these relationships. A central hub will be set up in a co-working space in Berlin, where we will spend a full working day in-game.
If you can not join on location, the whole event will be live streamed on:
Another option would of course be to join us in game. A link to the server will be posted on the day itself.
