Let me start by explaining the main focus of my practice, which relates in particular to this conference. I have to say that the questions of copyright and authorship and hybrid value of objects, among them artworks, are actually at the core of my artistic practice. I am also very interested in the question of labor, especially in how labor became immaterial since the beginning of cognitive capitalism or late-capitalism. I’m interested in the questions of immaterial and invisible labor as well as hidden exploitation of social energies.
