CONFERENCIA DEL PROFESOR PHILIP SCHLESINGER
University of Glasgow
Trabajo cultural (precario) y derechos de autor
Resumen:This article first discusses the contemporary debate on cultural ‘creativity’ and the economy. Second, it considers the current state of UK copyright law and how it relates to cultural work. Third, based on empirical research on British dancers and musicians, an analysis of precarious cultural work is presented. A major focus is how those who follow their art by way of ‘portfolio’ work handle their rights in ways that diverge significantly from the current simplistic assumptions of law and cultural policy. Our conclusions underline the distance between present top-down conceptions of what drives production in the cultural field and the actual practice of dancers and musicians.
