Art work as Knowledge work

Globalism and technological developments have seen the emergence of a new economy centred on the valorisation of immaterial capital. This new economy has been described as a knowledge economy, creative economy, post-­‐fordist economy and as a cognitive-­‐cultural economy. Marx described it as an economy where knowledge becomes 'the greatest productive force' and one where 'direct labour and its quantity disappear as the determinant principle of production' to become 'an, of course, indispensable but subordinate moment, compared to general scientific labour'. Marx’s knowledge is described as both the artistic and scientific development of individuals.

During my residency I will performative artistic practice exploring art work as a form of knowledge work. This will include working on the ongoing roject Comings and Goings (Essay on the artwork is attached). I will also produce a live performance extending the work of The old in out (Documentation of performance attached.
