Since 2009 Rogier Delfos is involved in Werker Collective together with Marc Roig Blesa, which is an editorial project about photography and labour that inquires into the possibility of formulating a contemporary representation of work. In which forms does work appear in our Post-Fordist society? How can we activate a critical and collective practice of self-representation as a form of resistance to the dominant media? Werker takes its name from the Worker Photography movement, a group of associations of amateur photographers that appeared in germany in the 1920s, following in the steps of the first socialist photography experiences in the USSR which extended into the rest of Europe, the USA, and Japan. Far from having a rhetorical approach to Worker Photography, Werker Magazine is interested in their radical practice of photography based on self-representation, self-publishing and image critique.
