"The Neoliberal Self: Lectures, Interviews, Art" considers various perspectives on the neoliberal subject. Exploring tensions between capitalism’s individuating force and the intersubjectivity it tends to obscure, the selected videos present this contemporary subject in a range of guises: human capital, homo economicus, entrepreneur of the self, investee, walking CV, research subject, psychiatric patient, social individual, transindividual, member of a future commons, post-subjective object, data set, and agglomeration of autonomous body parts.
