Airbnb, Uber, Taskrabbit, and many other platform-based companies build their marketing narratives on the notions of sharing, community, and human empowerment. These terms are also pivotal in a new iteration of a platform: “the entrepreneurial home”; an evolved co-working space where one can carry on an entire life without leaving the house—sleep, work, network, and explore oneself 24/7. This event invites a selection of entrepreneurs and scholars from, among others, the fields of sociology, anthropology, architecture theory, and political science to converse on key notions concerning the Entrepreneurial Home.The discussion will be structured according to scenes from Marta Dauliūtė's and Viktorija Šiaulytė's documentary film and research project Good Life. In it, the filmmakers present a case study of a collective house for entrepreneurs, established by a real-estate startup in Stockholm, Sweden. Here corporate culture and community building make an extraordinary match, while algorithmic management techniques accompany programs of self-improvement and spaces of collective belonging. With: Edoardo Archetti, Patrick Hoffmann, Travis Hollingsworth

The event is curated by Marta Dauliūtė and Viktorija Šiaulytė and builds upon the preparation process carried out in the framework of the transmediale Vilém Flusser Residency for Artistic Research 2018 and in workshops prior to the festival, including at the Institute for Visual Anthropology at the Free University of Berlin.

With support from the Lithuanian Council for Culture

Good Life is produced in collaboration with Last Project.
