The conference seeks to explore the field of contemporary art as social factory, which determines division of labour, attri­bution of statuses, and distribution of the various forms of capital. When we discuss artistic labour, we analyse the entire process of art production, in which artists are involved among other groups of producers, such as assistants, curators, techni­cians, administrators. We seek to expose competitive pressu­res both within and between those categories, mechanisms converting various types of capital (i.e. social, symbolic, and economic), systems of justification and moral economies cha­racteristic for this mode of production.
