In a post-work utopia, what happens to domestic labour? Join Helen Hester and Nick Srnicek in conversation with writer Amelia Horgan to celebrate their latest publication, After Work: A History of the Home and the Fight for Free Time. In this new book, they lay out how unpaid work in our homes has come to take up an ever-increasing portion of our lives and chart the ideas of anti-housework visionaries, to sketch out a path towards real free time for all –where everyone is at liberty to pursue their passions, or do nothing at all.
In partnership with Verso.
