Pets surround us, yet we do not value their work. “Performances for Pets” is a performance by Krõõt Juurak and Alex Bailey only performed for pets. With this work Juurak and Bailey want to reflect upon the working conditions of artists and the affective labour they provide. Meanwhile a such performance can also be read as a pointer to what status pets have assumed in the lives of many humans and to what kind of production is hiding behind the furry comfort.
