The Transmission Annual Volume 4, entitled ‘Labour, Work, Action’, will be published in November and launched at Site Gallery on Tuesday 3 December.

Taking up Hannah Arendt’s reflections on three important human activities – labour, work, action – this book addresses the role that might be played by artist or work of art, and how this makes for agents and agency.

The launch follows a Transmission talk by Oliver Ressler, 4.15pm – 5.45pm at S1 Artspace. The event is free and open to all.
