Research Focus

Continuing his long-term critical examination of everyday life focused on the patterns of labour, leisure, and sleep produced by the “eternal wakefulness” of 24/7 capitalist economies, Danilo Correale intends to further investigate the global phenomenon of outsourced labour and its deep ramifications within Southeast Asia. The artist aims to problematize the differences between night- and day-culture by understanding how nocturnal time and urban nightscapes are inhabited and modified by shift workers operating across different time zones, the profound impact on their bodily rhythms, and the affective relationships within their communities. The realm of the night is therefore framed as a ‘back-door’ to examine the effects of late capitalism on society and understand how BPO (Business Process Outsourced) economy alters urban, cultural, and biological human ecosystems. Building upon fieldwork previously conducted in India and the Philippines, Correale will now further develop his project by taking advantage of Singapore’s unique position within the regional and global economic map.
