New Poetics of Labor is an independent initiative for artists that aims to explore the relationship and exchanges between art and labor. We bring together artists, writers, and scholars from around the world to facilitate a new critical dialogue that reframes local contexts of production.

NPoL is an international group of artists and thinkers. We are formed by production, curatorial, and editorial staff, as well as reviewers and writers.

NPoL is a platform for conversation, research, creative experimentation and action. NPoL is an act of resistance.
