BATISTA, Mariana Klein; GRISCI, Carmem Ligia Iochins; GALLON, Shalimar  and  FIGUEIREDO, Marina Dantas de. Slow movement: work and time experimentation in the liquid-modern life. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2013, vol.25, n.1, pp.30-39. ISSN 1807-0310.

The following paper aims at describing work and life in the liquid modern life. For that matter the Slow Movement is presented as an analysis reference. Advertised as a world movement towards a slower time, its proposition has spread and been recognized as it acknowledges the feeling of hopelessness brought up by the liquid life, as described by Bauman (2007). The objective is to understand if and how the Slow Movement leads to a different experimentation of time, as well as if it is an expression of resistance to the current ways of working and living. The analysis proposes that although the Slow Movement presents itself as a resistance to the current acceleration, it is still linked to a managerial ideology (Gaulejac, 2007). Thus, the movement contributes to peace the psychological damages caused by the pressures of time, although it doesn't operate as a revolution.

Keywords : time; acceleration; resistance; life styles; work.
