War Primer 3

War Primer 3: Work Primer is an appropriation of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin's War Primer 2, itself an appropriation of Bertolt Brecht's Kriegsfibel. While Broomberg and Chanarin updated Brecht's original to comment on the War on Terror, I in turn update theirs to comment on their problematic transplantation of Brecht's work and rhetoric to the elite, expensive domain of fine art, and their use of unpaid labour in the production of their book. Overlaying their images with photographs of economic inequality and adding text from Brecht's poem A Worker Reads History, I aim to draw attention to the exploitative working conditions that exist in all industries, from sweatshop workers in Dakha to arts sector interns in London.
