CFP (Media-N): Art & Labor in the Amazon Economy. Deadline: May 1, 2019

Subject: CFP: Special issue of Media-N: Art & Labor in the Amazon Economy

Deadline: May 1, 2019

Media-N: Journal of the New Media Caucus

Special Thematic Issue: “Humans Are Underrated: Art & Labor in the Amazon Economy”

Media-N, Journal of the New Media Caucus, invites submissions for a special themed issue on the changing status of art and labor in the digital age. The issue borrows its title from a best-selling managerial tract, Humans are Underrated: What High Achievers Know That Brilliant Machines Never Will, which instructs companies on how to prioritize and reward undervalued forms of human labor as an effective business strategy in an age of increasing automation. Such “underrated” labor forms include storytelling, improvisation, spontaneity, critical and aesthetic judgment, creativity, empathy, authenticity, sincerity, attention, intimacy, care, cheer, and humor. Often referred to as “soft skills,” these “human” capacities are also (and not coincidentally) typically associated with artistic production. By engaging in these activities and behaviors, human workers generate forms of surplus value more effectively and convincingly than their machine counterparts—at least, for the time being. But inasmuch as the notion that “humans are underrated” responds to the substitution of human workers by computerized systems, the underlying question of what will constitute exclusively “human” labor in an increasingly automated future remains in flux.

Spearheading this transformation in the meaning and value of work are major tech corporations like Amazon, which currently ranks second to Walmart as the largest U.S.-based corporate employer in the world. Amazon’s worker base extends beyond its warehouses and corporate offices, and includes employees of subsidiary companies like Whole Foods, the thousands recruited to run its new HQ2 (locations now TBD), and legions more part-time workers who perform deliveries for services like Prime Now. Even more dispersed, and much less visible, are those employed via Amazon’s global microlabor platform Mechanical Turk, described as “an on-demand, scalable, human workforce to complete jobs that humans can do better than computers.” Essentially, mTurk is a marketplace that enables anyone to become a “requester” in order to advertise “Human Intelligence Tasks” (HITs), typically simple assignments like filling out surveys, analyzing receipts, performing online research, transcribing audio or writing captions. The vast majority of these micro-tasks take less than a minute to complete and pay around five to ten cents. While most HITs are used for the purposes of marketing and industry research, in the aggregate, these tasks contribute to the longer-term goal of improving algorithms so that computers can be “trained” to behave more like human beings.

Much criticism has been leveled against Amazon’s workplace culture, from the unsafe conditions, long shifts, and low wages at its warehouses, to the notoriously cutthroat culture of its corporate offices. However, the labor performed by its global workforce of mTurkers remains largely invisible and behind-the-scenes. As a result, the impact of companies like Amazon on the future of human labor, not just in the U.S. but world-wide, has yet to be fully grasped.

This special issue of Media-N seeks submissions that examine the role of art, and specifically new media art, in addressing the ongoing transformation of human labor in an economy dominated by corporate tech behemoths like Amazon, and by extension, how this transformation impacts the meaning and significance of artistic labor. We seek contributions from scholars, critics, artists, designers, scientists, media-makers, and interdisciplinary researchers from across the humanities and sciences who are interested in the relation between digital media and human labor. Individual and collaborative submissions are welcome.

Media-N, Journal of the New Media Caucus (ISSN: 1942-017X) is a scholarly, invitational, and double blind peer-reviewed journal. The journal provides a forum for scholarly research, artworks and projects, and is open to submissions in the form of papers, reports, and reviews of exhibitions and books on new media art. Media-N is an English language journal, and all submissions must be received in English adhering to the standards set by the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.

About the festival:

ITINERANT was created in 2010 by interdisciplinary artist Hector Canonge. The initiative was a small platform for Contemporary Performance Art, and had its origins in the monthly series A-Lab Forum that Canonge organized at Crossing Art Gallery in Flushing, Queens. Following the growing interest in Live Art, and the need to present performance programs in the borough, ITINERANT was launched in 2011 under the auspices of QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development. In 2012, ITINERANT was recognized by the City of New York as the first Performance Art festival taking place in the five boroughs (Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island) that make the metropolitan region. Following the large scale venture in NYC, Canonge journeyed through Europe and Latin America creating, in 2013, the Spanish edition of the festival and calling it Encuentro ITINERANTe with public presentations in various cities in the Southern Hemisphere. In 2015 the festival featured 30 artists from over ten countries with presentations at the Queens Museum, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Momenta Art, Glasshouse ArtLifeLab with Public Interventions at 37th Rd. Pedestrian Plaza, and at Manuel de Dios Unanue Triangle Plaza, in Queens, NYC.

 

The latest edition of the festival took place in 2018 with the participation of local, national and international artists whose works were featured at the Queens Museum, Bronx Museum of the Arts, and the performance art venues: The Last Frontier, Grace Exhibition Space, and Panoply Performance Laboratory. The festival’s closing event was marked by public performances at the historical landmark of Flushing Meadows Corona Park, site of the 1939 and 1969 World’s Fairs.

Please note that as an independent artist-run initiative, ITINERANT is not able to pay honorarium, reimburse the cost of travel and/or accommodations or any related expenses. However, the festival provides “capital-intrincic value” by giving artists unparalleled visibility and exposure by fostering the production and presentation of works in important venues in the United States, Europe and Latin America.
