By Nancy Harding
Inspired through the paintings of the thinker Judith Butler, prompted through Marx’s thought of alienation and intrigued by way of theories of dying, this booklet develops an anti-methodological method of learning operating lives. differences are drawn among labour (the projects we do in our jobs) and paintings (self-making actions which are performed on the workplace): among the fewer than human, zombie-like laborer and the operating human self. Nancy Harding argues that the event of being at paintings is one during which the insistence on training one’s humanity consistently presents a counter-point to organisational demands.
