This chapter examines contemporary art and the practice and anti-dialectical thought of a so-called anartist, suggesting that contemporary art can be considered as constituting a new expanded field which utilises and critiques the sensations produced by cognitive immaterial labour. It explains that, in this sense, contemporary art does not signify the disappearance of hand-work or physical labour, but the constitution of another assemblage in which manual labour and intellectual labour are caught up in a machinic process, which can be found not only in the actions of the broader public.

Keywords:   contemporary art, anartist, cognitive immaterial labour, sensations, physical labour, machinic process, public
