THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF SOCIAL CREATIVITY
THE LABOUR OF THE MULTITUDE? 
THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF SOCIAL CREATIVITY
Internationa conference of the Free/Slow University of Warsaw 
20-22/10/2011, Warsaw



Addressing the issue of social economy of creativity we seek to enlarge the spectrum of creativity’s political economy. Creativity refers to many things: it is both a means of production and a fetish of consumption, a sheer ideology of the capitalism which calls itself post-industrial. Is it true that contemporary capitalism has made an decisive shift in its modes of producing value and artistic and cultural modes of production (along with scientific ones) are no longer merely supplementary fields of capitalistic social infrastructure? Or maybe we still linger under the rule of the old law of value based rather on living labour then creative networking. In this case the new social economy of the creativity would be a powerful symptom of a present crisis.
