Post-Work in the State of Precarious Normalcy
September 1st, 2016Type: Opinion
Author: Chan, Yu-chieh Editor: Rikey Tenn
Note: Recently, with the advent of Post-Fordism environment that features knowledge and innovation intensive production, there have be extensive discussions and various publications on immaterial labor, and much “confrontational” production oriented on labor in arts, across domestic and international arts field. In the aftermath of the aforementioned, this article attempts to draw connections between labor in arts, short-term intermittent employment, and “precarity” of life, and to further search for an artist’s’ position in between and the possibilities of the new relations between he/her and the environment.
