Arbeit Nervt! brings together 13 contemporary artists from across Europe whose practice focuses on aspects of work and daily labour.

 

The exhibition will debut the first sculpture from Long's anticipated Level Structure series. Combining the art historic iconography of Minimalism with the democratic principles of DIY construction, Level Structure – Fisco L3/L53 (2011) utilises 80 interlocking sprit levels in its rectilinear construction.

 

Arbeit Nervt! is curated by Caspar Walbeck, Elena Schneider and Hannes Woidich, with kind support by Sparkasse Dortmund, Cultural Department of the City of Dortmund.
