Are You Working Too Much?

e-flux journal is pleased to announce the release of the fourth in its ongoing series of readers published by Sternberg Press, entitled Are You Working Too Much? Post-Fordism, Precarity, and the Labor of Art.Let’s be clear about something: it is infuriating that most interesting artists are perfectly capable of functioning in at least two or three professions that are, unlike art, respected by society in terms of compensation and general usefulness. When the flexibility, certainty, and freedom promised by being part of a critical outside are revealed as extensions of recent advances in economic exploitation, does the field of art become the uncritical, complicit inside of something far more interesting?

With Essays by Franco Berardi Bifo, Keti Chukhrov, Diedrich Diederichsen, Antke Engel, Liam Gillick, Tom Holert, Lars Bang Larsen, Marion von Osten, Precarious Workers Brigade, Irit Rogoff, and Hito Steyerl.

Edited by Julieta Aranda, Brian Kuan Wood, and Anton Vidokle.
