Danilo Correale, Reverie: On the Liberation from Work, 2017, audio record, each side 21:20 min., installation view

Reverie. On the Liberation from Work is a two-chapter guided hypnosis exercise aimed at deeply relaxing one’s body and mind in preparation for a future without work. Think of “reverie” as a tool to help you visualize what a life free of work can be. This hypnotic exercise guides one on a peaceful journey of the mind to explore a realm where work is no longer needed, and where the dream of universal basic income has finally succeeded.
