artWork: Art, Labour and Activism brings together a variety of perspectives on contemporary cultural production and activism in order to interrogate how the concepts of art, labour and activism intersect in practices for social change. The book asks: what can we learn about contemporary art and politics by looking at the intersections between art, labour and activism? And what theoretical tools can help us arrive at a deeper understanding of these intersections? In order to address these questions, the chapters in this edited volume look at issues such as the role of art as activism, the use of social media and technology in creative production and organising, the politics of artmaking, the commodification of culture and the possibility of a creative commons, and the work of artist activists as educators. In addition to offering a variety of new perspectives from researchers and practitioners, this volume makes an original theoretical contribution by proposing new paths towards interdisciplinary research in this field that combine sociological, anthropological, philosophical and art theory perspectives.
