WORK HARD, PLAY HARD

Work has to be fun! Who wouldn’t enjoy having a pleasant working environment, stimulating opportunities in your free time and a palsy-walsy relationship between colleagues and superiors? The corporate companies, which the film Work Hard, Play Hard aims to portray, are trying to provide exactly these working conditions for their employees. Work space is nicely done up, there are extracurricular activities for team-building purposes and working itself seems to be more like gaming; with “challenges” to be met and personal “performances” to improve.

The award-winning documentary Work Hard, Play Hard shows in quite striking pictures, the inside of such a “brave new world” of labour. Accompanying this is the short film Scharrenhausers Architekturbüro (2009, 6’) by Fabian Daub and Claire Walka which deals with how and at what price the dissolution of boundaries between work and free time could work out.
