O potrzebie antropologii w społecznej praxis. Kilka uwag na gorąco po realizacji projektu badawczego
The research project “Cultural infrastructure and formula of office work in a new cultural situation in comparison to the state of consciousness and practices of the unemployed” was made to a particular situation concerning a wide culture's plan* of the city of Łódź. For several years, Łódź's real and media situation is increasingly getting worse. It is a big city with which are associated cases of extreme decay of the fundamental principles of human existence. Since the outbreak of the economic crisis, one more flaw joined the abovementioned list of shortcomings – Łódź is in the forefront in unemployment statistics. The city have not coped a challenge with the free market. Both figures: 24 954 long-term unemployed, and 14 981 belonging to the category over 50 years are a sad example. At some point – particularly in mid-2013, the drama of job losses began to touch the people with higher education, with high professional competence, employees, educational institutions, faculty, universities, professional people. I wanted to go into the context of the integrated functioning of the institutions set up to help those who have been without work (starting from the space and the "world of things", to the axiology of images and ideas about office clients existing in the minds of employees), attitudes and expectations of the beneficiaries of the institution and the transformation of meanings and practices in the area of social praxis The crucial point and objective of the project was, however, the answer the question: How is it? And is there a chance to change something?
