/28 Leisure Time

Leisure begins where work ceases entirely. The time of leisure is a separate time. The neoliberal imperative to perform transforms time into working hours. It totalizes a belabored temporality. Breaks represent only a phase of the working day. Today, we know time only as time for working. We carry it with us, like this, not only on vacation, but also in our sleep. That's why we sleep agitated: the exhausted performance subjects fall asleep as one leg falls asleep. Since it serves the regeneration of the work force, rest is nothing more than a mode of work: relaxation is not the other from work, but its product.
