"So what's your real job" was first done for the off art-fair Poppositions in Brussels in April 2015.
It was showcased as 14 video interviews, each video shown in separate monitors. All monitors were placed randomly on four industrial shelves.

In the work "So what's your real job" we chose to focus on what the concept of the ART WORLD means to a child of an artist parent.

We reached artists and their children through an open call on social media networks and through our own networks and asked them to contribute to our research project.
We asked the parents to record a session when they discuss the topic of the ART WORLD with their children. At that time we got 14 different interviews, in different languages, but as the project is ongoing we are still open for more contributions.

At first we only wanted to use the voices of the children but when hearing how the parents (artists) were posing the questions we found it important to keep their voices. Both the parents and the children reflect very well various types of contemporary social situations of Artists. There are funny comments, some even hilarious, rough and serious ones but mostly extremely honest.

We have chosen to work with this social study mainly because we as artists and parents are curious about the thoughts of the next generation. The outcome was very interesting as we had no idea what so ever what the children were thinking. Perhaps they would not care at all? And growing up with the "art world" - how does a child look at the whole phenomena?

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."
Pablo Picasso
