HYPERUNIONISATION is an international online platform aiming to foster a transnational network of groups, institutions and organisations focused on the rights of cultural workers in Europe and worldwide. The project is produced by AWI and has been supported by the European Cultural Foundation.
HYPERUNIONISATION aims at creating dialogue and mutual support between these entities, implementing effective solidarity practices for those presently in need, and activating a
common learning process to analyse and share tools of ethical, political and legal nature that can help cultural workers to survive the contemporary crisis and in the long term.

HOW TO STRIKE
Moderated by Vincenzo Estremo [AWI]
The first roundtable intends to investigate the common genealogy of work in the present medialised world, sharing tactics of self-organization and strategies of legitimisation concerning different categories of workers. In the face of the flexibility, “platformisation”, and parceling out of interpersonal relations that have redefined contemporary work, art and art workers pose themselves as interested observers trying to understand what active role they can play in a wider panorama of social movements. The roundtable intends to bring into dialogue the experiences of Gig-Workers with the attempts to organise and protest in the artistic field. From an intersectional point of view and using the protests held internationally by riders as a starting point, the roundtable aims to establish a transversal community based on dialogue and the sharing of tools of protests and struggles. “HOW TO STRIKE” wishes to intercept and publicly share a common will of all workers in redefining the terms and conditions of a new and more ethical statute of labour.
The first roundtable takes place on the “Giornata del Contemporaneo”, a yearly occasion promoted by AMACI - Associazione dei Musei d’Arte Contemporanea Italiani to celebrate contemporary art in Italy.
