How does work look like? And how does artistic practice look like?
What does its look tell us about its goal, its cultural and social context?
What specifies an activity as artistic opposed to non-artistic activity?

The camera motor scans the surface of rehearsals, of manual labour, service and immobile-spiritual activities, procedures of (re-) production in Mexico City and Berlin.

"Arbeit und Freizeit (2) – Fiesta y ensayo" is a performative and modular installation work designed for a gallery space. Musicians, visual artists, viewers and collaborators share the same space, rehearsing a performance, performing a a rehearsal, producing practices and practicing products.
