Workers! - Petra Bauer and SCOT-PEP

13 April 2019 until 30 June 2019

Workers! is a new film initiated by Collective in 2016, between Swedish artist and filmmaker Petra Bauer and SCOT-PEP, a sex-worker led organisation in Scotland.

Taking a collective approach inspired by feminist film practitioners who emphasise the importance of making films with their subjects rather than about them, Workers! centres the voices of sex workers demanding to be seen as experts on their own labour and lives during a one-day occupation of the Scottish Trade Union Congress.

First screened as part of Collective’s launch in 2018, Workers! now returns to Collective for a full exhibition in the City Dome. The exhibition includes a banner made by SCOT-PEP and artist Fiona Jardine, inspired by the traditional iconography and craft of Trade Union banners and tapestries along with a collection of written and audio materials presented in Collective’s Library.

Workers! is produced by Collective and HER film, with University of Edinburgh as Research Partner.

Join us for the Preview on Friday 12 April, 7 – 9pm.
