Reverie: On the Liberation from Work
Danilo Correale, Reverie: On the Liberation from Work
Entrée presents an exclusive hypnotherapy session for The Cabin Series, onboard Coast Contemporary*. In Reverie: On the Liberation from Work, artist Danilo Correale has collaborated with a New York-based psychotherapist and hypnotherapist to create a guided hypnosis that aim to relax the body and mind in preparation for a post-work society. This hypnotic exercise will guide you on a peaceful journey of the mind to explore the realm where work is no longer needed, and where the dream of universal basic income has finally succeeded.
Reverie: On the Liberation from Work, is otherwise available as an limited edition LP that includes The Decelerationist Reader, a book featuring excerpts from Avi Alpert, Bob Black, Andre Gorz, Susan Brown, Bertrand Russell, Poppy Dixon and the Center for Experimental Meditation.
Danilo Correale’s work has long focused on the human aspect of financial capitalism. In the increasingly urgent context of the global economy and a rapidly evolving workforce landscape, the artist uses the language of hypnosis to vividly describe a practical solution to empirical but yet potential issues inherent in a system too long stagnant in the old rhetoric of work.

Entrée also screens Danilo Correale's video Equivalent Unit. The film is the result of an exploration within the complexity of the port labour observed through the same restless eye of the commodity in its journey. A continuous, abstract, lens that only sometimes can stop and interrogate on the affective relationship which still binds man and what remains of goods in the era of its containerization.Danilo Correale, Equivalent Unit (2017).
