The Art of Bureaucracy is a research project led by Eliane Glaser (Christchurch University) and Pil and Galia Kollectiv (University of Reading).
It is a paradox of advanced Western economies that bureaucracy has not only endured; it has actually proliferated. To understand why is to explore complex questions about capitalism, power, individual and collective psychology, and the nature of work. This event, organised by Eliane Glaser with Pil and Galia Kollectiv, brings together academics, writers and artists to expose and represent the meaning and function of this scourge of everyday life that we all contend with, yet rarely think or talk about.
