Work relates three portraits of collectivity at work. It grows out of a collection of stories of inadequacy, unease and hypocrisy in labour structure.
How can “we” recognize the state of emergency in a parallel state of now and not now, here and not here, surviving and considering a change? Is it a time to act already? And what is the process of forming an action as many? And who are these ‘we’? It is a remonstrative question – says Donna Haraway. These “us” as we know it, is long gone… “We” are too much already and not yet…  Please, come over, “we” will exercise leaving, entering and leaving.
