Streik Academy (2009)

To strike means to end what is unendurable. It can serve to establish improvements, point to alternatives or, as a symbolic action, attract public attention. It relies on collective organization or, if one "goes on strike alone,” at least on publicity. It can be part of an organized strategy, as a powerful threatening gesture, or a self-empowered wildcat strike, independent of institutions. And by the way, becoming a woman (and as we know, one is not born a woman) is work, too. But what happens if one is an entrepreneur in one’s own right and markets oneself? In any case: striking (itself) is work and a public activity too.
