How do workers without bosses (i.e. worker-owners in cooperative businesses) transform workplace conflict? In The Meeting, the U.S. Federation of Worker Co-ops and librarians at the Free Library bring sculptural objects to difficult meetings. A water clock, a blue-foam head, and a glass tooth are employed by the co-op movement.

A commission supported by Moore College of Art and Design, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the DePaul Labor Education Center, the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives, and the New School.
