Abstract

This seminar looks at the idea of work in the arts and cultural sectors as 'good work.' Historically resistant to industrial-style organisation and with a commitment to craft labour and ideas of autonomy, so-called 'creative' work has been held up as a model of good work in the ‘knowledge economy, just as conditions are being degraded and casualised. This presentation considers this phenomenon and argues that the more creative work is held up as special and different, the worse working conditions have become, with consequences for representation and indeed for democracy.
