Beschrijving van het evenement

Beschrijving

The Ghostwriter is an individual who writes content under someone else’s name, obscuring their authorship in exchange for pay. By outsourcing his project to cheap and anonymous labour forces on freelance platforms such as Fiverr, Stefan Stefansson exposes the shifting position of the graphic designer within the current economic climate; one where labour is increasingly outsourced, delegated, masked and displaced.

How is the practice of a designer constituted, enhanced or limited by the growing amount of online marketplaces and informal platform economies? While the very idea of ‘authorship’ is being multiplied and dissolved with the proliferation of software-human extensions and entrepreneurial tools, this transition cannot be separated from the systemic conditions within the creative sector. Does this shift directly push, enable or limit the possibilities of a designer to perform their work?

Departing from practices that interrogate the conditions of nomadic [graphic] design labour today, the conversation will look for other forms of engagement — and forms of collective authorship — in the Netherlands and beyond.

With Stefan Stefansson, Silvio Lorusso, Lara Garcia Diaz and Fanfare (Freja Kir and Miquel Hervás Gómez).


The event is organised in collaboration with Onomatopee Projects in Eindhoven and city curator Josh Plough, and follows up on their roundtable discussion Bring Your Own Bricks and exhibition Do or Delegate!’, curated by Silvio Lorusso.
