  1. new welfare, or not.

    On 26th Octo­ber 2015 we have been invited to express our anger at a con­fer­ence held at the Boc­coni uni­ver­sity in Milan, on the sub­ject of the uncer­tain, shift­ing world of free­lance work­ers. We are happy to report that our ideas have been dis­missed as ide­o­log­i­cal and provoca­tive by the pres­i­dent of INPS.

    We hope he did not mean it in a good way.

  2. Backstage

    On the 9th of June 2015, the fierce team that man­ages Gizmo organ­ised at Politec­nico in Milan a sym­po­sium with an ambi­tious title: Back­stage, Archi­tec­ture as con­crete prac­tice.
    Incau­tiously they invited Mul­ti­tude to present the find­ings pub­lished with On Work. And so we did, spark­ing what could only be described as the first sign of a quite revolution.

    On 22 and 23 of May 2014, mul­ti­tude was show­cased at Off the Press, dur­ing the inter­na­tional con­fer­ence Dig­i­tal Pub­lish­ing Toolkit. The intru­sion was pos­si­ble thanks to the ten­tac­u­lar, effi­ciently reach­ing hands of the Insti­tute of Net­work Cul­tures. read more…

     
  4. take action

    Result­ing from a pre­vi­ous col­lab­o­ra­tion, we found our­selves with some high qual­ity prints pro­mot­ing our very own Mul­ti­tude­Film­Fes­ti­val We then had to make a choice: Keep them rolled up along with the poster of Iggy Pop and Tom Waits hav­ing cof­fee, or stick them to the wall right in the hearth of Rotterdam´s cre­ative headquarter.

  5. It’s Alive!

    mul­ti­tude is irre­ducible mul­ti­plic­ity, what­ever that means. col­lec­tive.
    Born from an acute sense of dis­tress, it’s not get­ting any bet­ter.
    It speaks about Archi­tec­ture, but it also speaks about Architecture.

@Conrad having worked in one of those offices that you mention, I have found your post as much provocative as naive and simplistic. I should make an entire post to explain why... will leave that for later. Thanks, anyway, to keep the discussion alive

Besides my terrible diction or lack thereof this raises another issue. Should we really feel outrage or sympathy for these interns? After all the ones who can afford to take these kind of jobs are the sons and daughters of the wealthy. What this letter is, is infact symbolic capital and social significance for sale. The rich kid can buy this piece of significance for among other reasons to go to a party and say to his less affluent counterpart, "hey I work for SANAA, or DS+R or whoever. Where do you work again?" Its a status symbol, just like a porsche, or a private jet. Affordable to a selected few that can afford it.
