The ARBEITSLABOR is an open programme at Lothringer 13 Lokal conceived by art mediator Julia Richter together with artists Susanne Beck and Karen Modrei. Over five weekends, the concept of LABOUR will be examined, taken apart, turned upside down and reassembled in workshops, discussions and work sessions; freely based on the ‘4-in-1 perspective’ developed by the sociologist and philosopher Frigga Haug. The 4-in-1 model is an approach for a social, gender- equitable and democratic society. Everyone's work should be divided into 4 equal parts so that everyone can be active in the areas of wage labour, care (CARE), education/culture and politics/ society.
Every Friday is WERKTAG. Work is carried out in the 4 windows of the Lokal, visible from the outside, and the ARBEITSLABOR can be visited.
Every Saturday is WORKSHOP day. Every Sunday is AFTER WORK with discussions about the working week, drinks and snacks.

Karen Modrei is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Munich. Her artistic practice is nourished by the textile craft and its cultural-historical categorisation, associated role perceptions and value systems.

Julia Richter is an art mediator and trend analyst in Munich. In her work, she translates artistic and social issues into sustainable, cross-generational mediation concepts that break down barriers and encourage dialogue.

Susanne Beck lives and works as a visual artist in Munich.
In her video works, spatial installations, text and sound works, she pursues performative approaches and deals with themes such as solidarity, relationships and agency.
