The flexible, precarious, paid, underpaid and unpaid features of cultural production and creative labour today is the subject of the fictional reality-TV project Kamera Laüft! [Camera rolling!]. Employing the methods of ‘militant research’, a method developed by Operaist and feminist movements in the 1970s kleines postfordistisches Drama (kpD) asked cultural producers in Berlin, including themselves, to describe their work lives, what they like, what desires they have for change, and about their position on cultural production and social activism. The material was transposed into a script to which a team of actors play out the various work/life dramas. Questions revolved around autonomy, self-entrepreneurship, working conditions, and the potential for new forms of politicization and collective articulation.
