The pandemic has forced capital and the state to reexamine many activities and work processes in terms of their potential to bring together people, their capacity to activate processes that would involve touch and proximity, and in terms of alternative modes of imagining work and consumption. In this talk, I ask: what is the specific moment- a conjuncture in the historical development in the capitalist production process- that the pandemic represents and what are the changes the pandemic has brought into labour and work? There is no single answer to this question; my project here is to think through certain tendencies that we have seen in the past few months.
