Fully Automated Luxury Communism

Fully Automated Luxury Communism, inspired by the utopian political ideology of the same name, is a playful, immersive artwork about how we might subsist, thrive and be subsumed in a post-work future.

Fully automated luxury communism (FALC) is a provocative ideology; proponents claim radical technologies will liberate us from waged labour and that advanced green technologies will keep all in a state of ecologically-sound plenty.

Throughout Adhocracy, artist Ian Sinclair with integrated designer Rachael Guinness, will work hard (but not too hard) with experts, audiences and DIY robots to investigate a speculative de-drudgery society, where machines do the heavy lifting and labour as we know it is a thing of the past. The irony of a jobbing artist undertaking the labour of making a post-work artwork will not be lost.
