The Case of Work comes out of Plurality University (U+). U+ intends to create an open, global, diverse collective that detects, connects, and federates people or organizations who mobilize the resources of the imaginary to broaden the scope of thinkable futures.
As a proof of concept, project WORK+ has collaboratively gathered 150+ fictional and artistic “fragments” on the futures of work. These include science fiction, visual and performing arts, speculative design, video games, utopias and manifestos, performances, and so on. Daniel Kaplan outlines the WORK+ toolbox and reports on its initial experimentation. Kaplan presents along with Catherine Dufour, a science-fiction writer who took part in a collective book on the future of work called Au bal des actifs.
