In the 21st century, work is increasingly individualised and thus corresponds to neoliberal demands.
Artists were and are part of the «avant-garde» of these developments. Starting from a contemporary Berlin co-working space, the filmmaker sets out to explore utopian forms of work. She talks to cultural workers who have supposedly already achieved their utopia. She witnesses a meeting in which attempts are made to bring the individual ideas together into a common utopia.
She works hard is a film about utopias of a society in which work is formed differently and distributed differently. An attempt to imagine ways out of precarious artistic working conditions.
