[Labour in a single shot, a project by Antje Ehmann and Harun Farocki] “Jointly with filmmakers in fifteen cities on five continents, Farocki and Antje Ehmann undertook a three-year exploration of the notion of work in today's world. Inspired by the form of the Lumière film, they set themselves strict limitations: the films to be created were to be no longer than two minutes in length, they had to be about work, and they could not contain a single cut.” Exhibition text excerpt, HKW (Berlin) [2013]
