šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ [About]
Peanuts minus Schulz : Distributed Labor as a Compositional Practice
brings together a selection of comic strips home-brewed by over one thousand deskilled microworkers from twenty different countries commissioned through digital labor services. The operation consists in the reproduction of iconic comic strips using a number of variations devised by Ilan Manouach.

Artist and researcher Ilan Manouach advances conceptual comics as an artistic practice devised to disrupt the myth of the solitary genius through the glorification of craftsmanship and fictions of artistic ethos and integrity. Conceptual comics aims to distance source artworks to make the claim for an expanded agency, in this case for the sake of microworkers as a whole.

The operation Peanuts minus Schulz reveals the mechanisms at work behind creativity in the making and the potential of the art form in flux when it is informed by the peripheral vision of the interconnected precariat.

šŸ‡ØšŸ‡µ [ƀ propos]Ā 
Peanuts minus Schulz : Le travail distribueĢ comme pratique organisationnelle rassemble une seĢlection de comic strips confieĢs aux talents de plus dā€™un millier de micro-travailleurs de vingt pays diffeĢrents par le biais de plates-formes digitales de distribution de travail. Le protocole consiste aĢ€ sā€™approprier et aĢ€ copier une bande-dessineĢe iconique en inteĢgrant des variantes eĢlaboreĢes par Ilan Manouach.

Bouleversant lā€™autoriteĢ de lā€™industrie creĢative, lā€™artiste et chercheur Ilan Manouach propose la bande-dessineĢe conceptuelle comme pratique artistique. Celle-ci vise aĢ€ mettre aĢ€ distance lā€™Å“uvre source pour revendiquer une forme dā€™auctorialiteĢ eĢlargie, ici aĢ€ lā€™ensemble des micro-travailleurs.

Lā€™opeĢration Peanuts minus Schulz reĢveĢ€le les meĢcanismes dā€™une creĢativiteĢ en devenir et le potentiel de la forme artistique en flux lorsquā€™elle est nourrie de la vision peĢripheĢrique dā€™un preĢcariat interconnecteĢ.
