“SHORT on WORK – a global contest for short videos on contemporary work” was designed and launched by the Marco Biagi Foundation – PhD Programme in Labour, Development and Innovation at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. The aim of the contest is to promote and collect short videos on contemporary work and to feed an international audiovisual archive of video representation of contemporary work contemporary film, to be used for teaching and research purposes.
According to our interdisciplinary approach, video representations of work are capable of casting new light on the transformations that have taken place in the world of work in recent decades, thereby overcoming the traditional dichotomy between corporate video productions and social documentaries. In this connection, Short on Work focuses in particular on short videos, as privileged tools not only for documentation but also for reflection and research.
In May 2023 the award ceremony of the tenth edition of “Short on Work” will take place in mixed-mode event at the Auditorium of the Marco Biagi Foundation..
The event will be streamed live on the Marco Biagi Foundation’s Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/c/fondazionemarcobiagi
