Es Baluard has invited the researcher Carmen Navarrete, co-author with Juan Vicente Aliaga of the book “Artistic production in times of precarious work” for the presentation in the museum.

The text emerges in a seminar organized by the Urban Space and Gender Technologies research group in the classrooms of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Valencia, in which it was intended to reflect on the situation of artistic practice in times of general labor precariousness. Aware that capitalism today is largely based on the capture and valuation of intangible social production, the authors ask about the people who give body to this sector, for the reasons of putting their work and social mediation even in precarious conditions , and by the consequences in society of the flexible “work” model. It is in the work of the artist as creative that lies the basis of the slogans of current discourses on cultural work. However, the roots come from other times in which the romantic and bohemian image of the artist was forged. An image that still persists in the collective imagination and that favors the depoliticization of artistic and / or cultural work. The book has been made with the collaboration of the Indevol Group of the University of Castilla-La Mancha.
