Office Aesthetics is an ongoing project on labour and gender through the lens of contemporary workspaces. During ViCCA Production Seminar, artworks created for the project by Alejandra Acosta Chávez, Daniel Bolívar, Saara Mahbouba and Paola Jalili will be on display, accompanied by a short presentation that will try to define the concept of «office aesthetics».
Paola Jalili has worked as an editor, publisher, and researcher. She is currently completing a master’s degree in visual culture and contemporary art at Aalto University. One day, Paola went to buy some paper at Staples and she felt so inspired by all the office supplies she saw there that she decided to do her thesis about these objects in order to understand why she was so fascinated with them.
