Advancement through education. Education through the Internet. - Two promises that have been the engines of meritocracy for many years. But while some people can use digital services to advance their careers in a self-determined way, the work of others is increasingly timed and monitored by digital technologies. So is our relationship to digital tools also shaped by social conditions?
Based on interviews, the interactive performance In skills we trust visualizes the biographies of people who have completed a so-called class journey, i.e. a change in their social and economic circumstances. With the help of specially developed software, the participants in the performance In skills we trust embark on this virtual class journey using a playful setting.
