Art has been integral to recent debates and critical strategies contesting the social imaginary of work. The modernist vision of artistic labour as the paradigm of nonalienated labour has been replaced by the alignment of art with the micropolitics of work and the withdrawal from work. Artists have been regarded as exemplars of both new forms of 24/7 labour and the humane workplace.
