“Tools for Imagination”, is an artwork by artist Céline Condorelli that intends to develop a wider and articulated investigation on the topic of Leisure.

Through the production of a body of works, talks and study materials, the project explores the history of work (productive time) and its necessary negative, the history of leisure (unproductive time), generating a paradox concerning the museum as the institution that, par excellence, perform the notion of time freed from working hours.

 “I am following a line that mirrors the history of work to the history of leisure as it’s necessary negative, looking at the specific situation that of course, by working in culture, we inhabit (with our labor and institutions) the time-space of society’s leisure: I am after all making work for parents and children at weekends or on holidays”. CC
