This booklet was released at the launch of the campaign Wages For Wages Against on March 2017 during the exhibition Speak, Lokal at Kunsthalle Zürich. It attempts to answer a simple question: why are artists not paid when they provide a service to an institution, in the form of an exhibition or else?

It gathers a series of interviews with Harry Burke (artist & Curator at Artists Space, NY), Bathazar Lovay (artist & Director of Fri Art Fribourg), Bea Schlingelhoff (artist & Head of BFA at ZHdK, Zürich), Lise Soskolne (artist & Organizer of W.A.G.E., New York) and Judith Welter (Director of Kunsthaus Glarus); as well as excerpt of reference texts on the topic including Andrea Fraser, Adrian Piper, Hito Steyerl, Heresies, Claire Fontaine, W.A.G.E., Guerilla Art Action Group, A.L. Steiner, Marina Vishmidt, Lucy Lippard, and Silvia Federici.
