That Might Be Right

Homers

That Might Be Right supports Homers by Piero Bisello and published by Surfaces Utiles.

The word “homer” is an English translation of a subversive practice in 1970s Hungary described by Miklos Haraszti: unbeknown to their bosses, workers in a steel factory would distract themselves from repetitive work by using machines, time and skills to make objects for themselves. Purposeless if not for their being glimpses of life, dreams of self-expressions, they consisted of things as pompous as ashtrays, base for flower pots, keychains; real autonomous work perhaps. This book collects artworks and texts related to homers, sometimes in a direct way, sometimes not.

A version of Homers will be presented at Le Sceptre on 31.5.2021
