Abstract: In mines and ports across the world, human labor
sustains our industrial and globalized economies.
Allan Sekula imagined and set out to realize an
artwork, The Dockers’ Museum, which makes the
struggles of miners, dockworkers, and seafarers
visible through networks of metonymic objects that
embody these workers’ imaginaries. The collaborative
notes gathered in this publication accompany the
presentation of the “Mining Section (Bureau des
mines)” of The Dockers’ Museum at the Anatomical
Theater in Leuven in the Fall of 2016.
