Nina Power: The Wound of Work

This talk will address how contemporary work relates to both art and feminism, with a particular focus on contemporary modes of employment and consumerism. The body, as discussed by Hervé Juvin in his recent book The Coming of the Body, will be the starting point for an exploration of what it means when the body comes to stand in for the end of history, and how work and the body relate to one another in the present.

Nina Power is a senior lecturer in philosophy at Roehampton University and the author of One-Dimensional Woman (Zero Books, 2009).
