Syllabus Reading Group #5:
screening of Nightcleaners (1975)

Friday 13 November, 20:00
Syllabus Reading Group #5

Nightcleaners (1975)


Online film screening, with an introduction by Silvia Federici and Jesse Jones
In English
Hosted by Art Cinema OFFoff, Ghent University and Kunsthal Gent

During the week with Silvia Federici (26-29 October) it became clear how relevant the theme of the film Nightcleaners (1975, Berwick Street Collective) is for the current situation of many teleworkers, who have to combine their job with care work. Therefore, in this fifth edition of the Syllabus reading group we exceptionally do not read a text, but instead Art Cinema OFFoff makes an online screening of this film possible. In Nightcleaners we see cleaners with a job during the night and a dayshift in care tasks. These women, Irish migrants in the England of 1972, get only two hours of sleep per night.

The film is introduced by Silvia Federici in conversation with artist Jesse Jones.
More information about the film can be found here.

The Syllabus Reading Group is organized by Kunsthal Gent around the work 'Syllabus' by the Irish artist Jesse Jones: a monumental curtain with the arm of Silvia Federici, creating a space for (activist) gathering.

PRACTICAL
This event is free of charge and takes place online via ZOOM.
The film will be screened via the platform of distributor LUX.
After registration, the zoom link will be sent via e-mail.
