Amanda is a middle aged graduate of Brock university and lives in Stirling Ontario with her Husband. She has 3 children who are all grown up and have moved on with one still in school.
I asked Amanda what her opinion of Occupation was.
“its a state”
Occupation is a state of doing. Whether it your job, taking care of kids, going to the gym or being with family. Most people including myself mainly associate occupation with a job as it is flexible for all jobs as a label.
After reading the Hito Steyrl text, Amanda’s opinion did not change,
Yeah its a state of doing something. Time you spend with people, or yourself. Anything can technically be an occupation as it takes up your time. Occupation is all consuming as you orient your life towards it.
