Report to the Dowse on Saturday 12 February for your staff induction and workplace orientation led by artist Mark Schroder through his office-themed installation.

This is an exclusive opportunity to hear from the Tāmaki Makaurau based artist in conversation with Gus Fisher Gallery Curator, Lisa Beauchamp, as they take you around Mark Schroder: Fortune Teller (No. 2) (Branch Office), home of ‘The Bureau of Happiness’.

Inspired by his day job as a “corporate lawyer drone”, ‘The Bureau of Happiness’ is a fictional office plastered with absurd inspirational posters, copious memos about employee well-being, and handmade ceramics that speak to the workaday grind.
