The critique of labour and the work of critique

Hernández Velázquez, Yaiza María (2016) The critique of labour and the work of critique. In: Subjects for sale: labour precariousness and professional practices in the art world, 25th November 2016, Centre d'Art Santa Mònica.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Hernández Velázquez, Yaiza María

This paper compares a number of texts published since 2007 that deal with two problems always posited as distinct. The first concerns a crisis in the labour conditions of art workers, the second a crisis in art criticism. By reading these two sets of texts in relation to each other some blind spots in both can be revealed. The case is made that only by understanding them as intimately related problems can critique the work of critique be effectively carried out.
