Untitled (Labour) - Contemporary Art & Immaterial Production

Untitled (Labour)
Contemporary Art & Immaterial Production
Saturday 17 March 2012, 14.00–18.00

This half-day symposium invites audience members to engage with international artists and academics to investigate current conditions of artistic production in relation to new forms of labour in the emerging global economy. Presenting various perspectives on immaterial labour and its relationship to contemporary art, speakers will address questions around the impact of immaterial production on new aesthetic forms and uses of art, how artists both embody and contest the precarious working conditions of immaterial labour, and art’s potential to serve as immanent critique of capitalism.

Speakers: Claire Bishop, Tania Bruguera, Pascal Gielen, Stefano Harney, Stewart Martin, Hito Steyerl, Carey Young

Introductions: Nora Razian and Lauren Rotenberg

Chairs: TJ Demos, Lauren Rotenberg
