The Future of Work – ECF collaboration grant


KUD Mreža (SI), Projekthaus Potsdam-Babelsberg (GE), Zaaigrond filmproductions (NL) and artists Julij Borštnik (SI) and Abel Heijkamp (NL) received funding from the European Cultural Fund (ECF) to start a collaborative documentary project “The Future of Work”.

The project will focus on the challenges of the European labour market in three countries: Slovenia, Germany and the Netherlands. What are the changes in the contemporary strategies of doing business? What does it mean to be flexible? What conditions will we work in?

The project is a result of a discussion between Abel Heijkamp and Julij Borštnik. They will look into the differences and similarities in work related changes between the former country of East Germany, the former Yugoslavia and western countries, such as The Netherlands.

The project ˝The Future of Work“ will produce three short films about local situations in each of the following countries; Slovenia, Germany and The Netherlands. The fourth documentary will offer an accurate insight into the structural changing of working and living conditions from the European perspective.

The result of the project will be the four documentaries interwoven into an interactive internet webstructure ( The aim of the web platform is to (re)connect individuals and companies and include them in a constructive debate about the Future of Work. The website and the films will be presented in spring 2015 in each of the participating countries: Slovenia, Germany and the Netherlands.
