Unfolding over the course of eight hours—the duration of a typical workday—Hand over Heels is a performance by artist Barbora Kleinhamplová that takes over Art in General's office space to reflect on the experience of work within institutional structures. 

While scaling office furniture, performers recite excerpts from cover letters and psychosocial questionnaires relating to unpaid internships. Meanwhile, a giant pair of hands inflates and deflates under the performer-workers’ supervision, simultaneously affirming and questioning our dominant labor systems today.

Hand over Heels stems from longterm research the artist has conducted on our contemporary relationship to labor and its uncertainties, and asks: what norms must we conform to, however unstable, in order to get by? What kind of work do we want to do? How do we measure and define our capacities?

The performance is co-presented by Art in General and Jindrich Chalupecky Society in conjunction with the exhibition Danilo Correale: At Work’s End, which imagines a future without work.
