LABOUR is the duo of Farahnaz Hatam and Colin Hacklander who create works based on sound.

The name LABOUR is inspired in part by an early definition by Marx that gives ontological significance to the realm of work, as articulated by the philosopher Christopher J. Arthurs, defining labour as “the ontologically fundamental productive activity in and through which one becomes what one is.”

studio LABOUR is the duo’s creative studio, an extension of their artistic practice for special projects including artistic direction, curation, project coordination, releases and more.
