Immaterial labour, “the labor that produces the informational and cultural content of the commodity”, [1] is highly topical, as a rising majority of people spend most of their time before screens and the lines between work and leisure are hard to separate. In addition to creative work, care work comes to mind, work that is to a large part unpaid and mostly done by women. [2]
