Photographs by Bill Sewell

Exhibition Opening Reception

Friday April 12, 6pm

Wilder House / 5811 S. Kenwood
** Cocktails and Refreshments will be served **

This exhibition was composed as a meditation on aspects of the life of labor and draws from a series of photographs shot in Chicago’s Loop (1999-2000) and in the Marais district of Paris (2011-2012).
Reflecting upon a number of work experiences, objects and sites, this collection of photographs explores a range of existential and emotional qualities entailed in the quotidian experience of work.

WORK was mounted in anticipation of 3CT’s upcoming conference “Global Capitalism and the Crisis of Work” which will examine the structural transformations of capitalism and of the world of work in recent decades.
Further detail concerning this conference will be available shortly at ccct.uchicago.edu

October 18 Eric Triantafillou

The next meeting of the Social Theory Workshop will take place Thursday, October 18 at 6pm in Wilder House (5811 S Kenwood Ave)

In keeping with the workshop’s on-going engagement with historical understanding of left social movements and politics, we will be discussing a paper by Anthropology PhD student Eric Triantafillou, “‘We Rule You’: The Visual Epistemology of Capitalism as a Pyramid.” In this paper Eric considers the critical sufficiency of the imagery and discourses about aesthetic production deployed by left social movements in the United States.
