Art’s materiality has been the focus of fierce debate since claims about the ‘dematerialization’ of art were made in New York at the end of the 1960s. More recently, in the very different 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 of the cultural and intellectual content of commodities. This conference will bring these two discourses together to stage a debate about contemporary art, ‘immaterial’ labour and new modes of production of subjectivity.

Speakers include: Franco Berardi, Maurizio Lazzarato, Antonio Negri, Judith Revel.
