Danielle Child is Senior Lecturer in Art History and Deputy Head of Postgraduate Arts and Humanities Centre (PAHC) at Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University. Her research adopts an historical materialist approach to explore the relationship between contemporary art and capitalism through the lens of labor. This interest includes social (collective, participatory and public) artistic practices, contracted labor (the ‘invisible hands’ of production) in art, and contemporary art and social class. She has published articles in Oxford Art Journal, Third Text, Art & the Public Sphere and Sculpture Journal. Danielle is co-Lead (with Dave Beech) on the AHRC-funded Mapping Creative Labour in Contemporary Art network and co-host (with Sarah Scarsbrook) of the podcast Classed Acts. Her book Working Aesthetics: Labour, Art and Capitalism was published in January 2019 with Bloomsbury Academic and she is currently working, as editor, on The Routledge Companion to Art and Capitalism.
