In mines and ports across the world, human labour sustains our industrial and globalised economies. Allan Sekula imagined and set out to realise 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 Theatre in Leuven in the Fall of 2016.
