In the organizer's words:
Shopping malls and zones are changing, "stay in your cave, human," shouts the ad of last-mile bike courier service Gorillas, and even supermarkets are perpetuating and accelerating their delivery offerings into the night and into the home. This piece is not about lamenting the transformation, but about engaging with its pace-setter, Amazon.
The catalog of goods on Amazon comprises 12 million products - and numerous more are added every day -; an endless dance of the production of goods and desires around the globe. Everything is shipped from hundreds of "fulfillment centers," but how do they actually work and what does "fulfillment" consist of?
Rimini Protokoll invites you to the circus CABUWAZI in Marzahn and asks: What connects the daily training of the body on the high wire with the work of the index finger on the scanner and the performance rate at the end of the shift? Why do the tables dance in Karl Marx's Capital? Is it easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of Amazon? Did the conquistadors really call the most watery river on earth "Without Nipples"? And Amazon its online agency for "Human Intelligence Tasks" after the so-called "Shaft Turk"?
