In the documentary ‘Alles Flex?’ (All Flex?) filmmakers Abel Heijkamp (NL) and Julij Borštnik (SI) explore the possible consequences of the current flexibilisation of our life-world. It draws upon the personal accounts of flex workers and flex tenants of different ages and walks of life. What kind of society are we fostering when existential security is no longer a right, but a privilege for those who can afford it?
Dutch Housing Minister Stef Blok has recently stated that “while working is already flexible and dynamic, the labour market should soon follow accordingly”. With over 10 types of temporary tenancies already in place, and legislation that allows for new ‘flexibilities’ in preparation, insecure housing will likely become the norm.
‘Alles Flex?’ is the first episode of a 4 part web documentary series The Future of Work.
Filmed in the Netherlands, Slovenija, Germany and Europe.
