Werker (or Werker Magazine) is a contextual publication about photography and labour initiated by Marc Roig Blesa and Rogier Delfos. Its starting point is the Worker Photography Movement, a group of associations of amateur photographers that appeared in Germany in the 1920s, following in the steps of the first socialist photography experiences in the USSR which extended into the rest of Europe, the United States, and Japan. Far from having a rhetorical approach to the work of these photographers, Werker takes interest in their working methodologies, based on self-representation, self-publishing, image analysis and collective learning processes. What forms does work take in post-Fordist societies? What representations of work are being produced today? Is it possible to activate collective practices of self-representation? To what end and for which audiences?
