The red fist in the foy­er marks Vienna’s Chamber of Labour as a his­to­ric achie­ve­ment of the labour move­ment. The need for legal repre­sen­ta­ti­on of workers’ inte­rests in the post-migrant era and a digi­tal pre­sent mark­ed by the pan­de­mic shows that this idea is hard­ly obso­le­te: the recep­ti­on desk is always bust­ling. The cli­ents are diver­se, and the ser­vices on offer varied: the­re are few bar­riers to access them. Friendly inter­ac­tion and a com­mit­ted atti­tu­de are the order of the day. In the style of par­ti­ci­pa­to­ry obser­va­ti­on, FÜR DIE VIELEN offers cle­ver­ly assem­bled glim­p­ses into the institution’s dai­ly acti­vi­ties, ran­ging from labour law con­sul­ta­ti­ons via team mee­tings and cul­tu­ral events to the pre­sen­ta­ti­on of eco­no­mic ana­ly­ses of wealth dis­tri­bu­ti­on. The con­cept of the wel­fa­re sta­te is ren­de­red visi­ble here, just as the pic­tu­re of a socie­ty emer­ges whe­re social dis­cri­mi­na­ti­on is com­mon­place. When pre­pa­ra­ti­ons to cele­bra­te the 100-year anni­ver­sa­ry of the chamber’s foun­ding col­l­i­de with the out­break of the Covid-19 pan­de­mic in 2020, the inter­nal orga­ni­sa­ti­on of cri­sis mode takes cent­re stage – and new chal­lenges for the world of work beco­me appa­rent. The idea must be kept ali­ve, #fore­ver. (Birgit Kohler)
