Alles Flex? the future of work
Amsterdam Tenants' Association
In the documentary Alles Flex? (‘All is flexible/cool?’) filmmakers Abel Heijkamp (NL) and Julij Borštnik (SI) explore the possible consequences of the current ‘flexibilisation’ of our life-world. It draws upon the personal accounts of flexible workers and flexible tenants of different ages and walks of life. What kind of society are we fostering when existential security is no longer a right, but a privilege for those who can afford it?
Dutch Housing Minister Stef Blok has stated that “while working is already flexible and dynamic, the labour market should soon follow accordingly”. With over 10 types of temporary tenancies already in place, and legislation being prepared that allows for yet more new ‘flexibilities’, insecure housing will likely become the norm.
‘Alles Flex?’ is the first episode of a 4 part web documentary series The Future of Work.
Filmed in the Netherlands, Slovenia, Germany and Europe.
