Art and immaterial labour, Maurizio Lazzarato, Judith Revel, Franco Berardi (Bifo), Antonio Negri

Radical philosophy conference - art and immaterial labour. Art’s materiality has been the focus of critical debate since claims about the ‘dematerialization’ of art were made in New York at the end of the 1960s.

More recently, in the context of libertarian political debates in Italy and France, claims have been made about the ‘immaterial’ character of labour processes based on information technology, and the cultural and intellectual content of commodities.
