Bodies at work: workplace gestures as artistic movement

Organized to Villa Gillet

Friday 15 november

Study Day


Theme: Let’s get to work!

The study day on Bodies at work: workplace gestures as artistic movement is part of the research program Art at work. Artistic and social representations of the working world since 1968 organized by Bérénice Hamidi-Kim (Lumière University Lyon 2) and Armelle Talbot (University of Paris Diderot) at the Passages XX-XXI laboratory (EA 4160, Lumière University Lyon 2).

After discussion of the critical issues involved in how workers, managers and bosses are represented and the language of work (managerial newspeak), this study day will examine the issue of the gestures involved in work and the various ways they become artistic.


Agathe Dumont, Flore Garcin-Marrou, Bérénice Hamidi-Kim, Ariane Martinez, Claudia Palazzolo, Vincent Rafis, Armelle Talbot.
