Škuc Gallery is proud to present a new catalogue, accompanying the exhibition A Taste for Work by the Rijeka based art collective Fokus grupa. The catalogue offers an in-depth account of the project, including curatorial text, descriptions of particular elements of the project as well as extensive photo documentation of both particular works and the set-up.

The project A Taste for Work tackles the paradoxical position of the contemporary artist who personifies the ideal of the post-Fordist worker that produces using cognitive and affective powers in flexible working conditions without separating between work and free time. Through various formal and conceptual examinations Fokus grupa provides a detailed genealogy of the post-Fordist paradigm, consistently dissecting the discourse built around the idea of work in the 21st century.
