About

The fourth and last of the The Camera at Work series. “Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art”, said Andy Warhol. He may be right, but the offices and boardrooms of the corporate world have rarely provided subject-matter for artists. Anna Fox and Carey Young both make work which explores the business world in challenging and inventive ways. They each discuss their practice as well as some of the images in Cruel and Tender with writer and documentary filmmaker Richard Reeves. Reeves, author of the much-publicized Happy Mondays - Putting the Pleasure Back into Work (2001), has been described by the Guardian as “Britain’s leading expert on workplace trends”. The Camera at Work series explores historical, sociological and aesthetic issues related to the photographic representation of work. It coincides with Tate Modern’s major exhibition Cruel and Tender. A collaboration with The Work Foundation, in association with Prospect magazine.
