De creatieve klasse als vreemdelingenlegioen | rekto:verso
Zo proberen veel kunstenaars, ontwerpers, onderzoekers en critici in de ‘creatieve hotspots’ van Nieuw-West voor zichzelf een plek uit te kerven in een overvolle sector, waarin steeds minder te verdelen is. Ze veren van klus naar klus, en intussen proberen ze tijd en ruimte te vinden om niet slechts te produceren, maar ook te reflecteren. De ‘nouveau poor’, zo typeert Hito Steyerl die klasse. Of nog: ‘lumpenfreelancers’. Het woord ‘freelance’ is afgeleid van huurling: een ‘free lance’, wiens zwaard niet ter beschikking staat van slechts één heer. Een prachtige metafoor voor deze generatie: verlost van het juk van gedwongen dienstbaarheid aan een almachtige heer, maar daarmee ook verstoken van privileges. Vrij, maar ook gevangen in het voortdurende ‘Nu’ van vriendendiensten, openstaande rekeningen, schijnsuccessen, tijdelijke wooncontracten, social media exposure, merkloze koffie en naderende deadlines. Mag er van dat ‘gedeterritorialiseerde’ vreemdelingenlegioen wezenlijk engagement verwacht worden? Loyaliteit, engagement en solidariteit blijken zich maar moeilijk te vestigen op de instabiele fundering van proces- en projectmatig werk en lage, onregelmatige inkomsten.
