What is the future of employment in an increasingly automated society? Artist Lawrence Lek is joined by curator Fatoş Üstek to discuss his commission for Art Night 2017, a video game ‘job simulator’ where all labour is disguised as leisure. A site-specific VR installation for the recently redeveloped White Chapel Building – previously owned by the Royal Bank of Scotland – Lek’s new work reflects on the relationship between labour and play.
