In an age of relentless productivity, our lives are dictated by the demand to produce, optimize, and contribute in the economic arena. This pervasive ideology has woven itself into the very fabric of our existence. It has shaped our values, our self-worth, and our collective aspirations. However, beneath the surface of this paradigm, we find a troubling omission—an erasure of activities and values that do not conform to an economic efficiency framework. This pervasive cultural mindset blinds us to the profound consequences of its narrow focus. In this exhibition we ask ourselves: What is sacrificed on the altar of perpetual productivity?
