Time & Motion uses artworks, research projects, archival materials and interventions to track our journey through the world of work, from clocking on at the factory gates to checking in online from our home office.

At a time of structural changes in the labour market and sharp transitions in business practice to address global recession, the exhibition asks timely questions including “What happened to the eight hour day?,” “What is your work life balance?” and “How has technology affected the way that you work?”
