Digitalization and marketization in live music

Limits of the platform economy

Online platforms have disrupted parts of the capitalist economy, with allegedly severe consequences in the world of work. This study examines live music in Germany and the UK, where online platforms do not dominate, despite considerable digitalization of market intermediaries. The analysis shows that, as the degree of digitalization increases, matching services tend to work less as a workers representative which is traditionally the case for live music agents and more as a force of marketization that disciplines workers by orchestrating price-based competition.

Alternative Organisations & Transformative Practices (AOTP) Research Cluster Conference

Dr. Dario Azzellini: Bridging the gap between academica, activism & filmmaking

“How do you neutralize a revolutionary?... you give him an office with air conditioning.” This was one of several humorous anecdotes that Dr. Azzellini shared with me during our interview. Dr. Azzellini’s eyes twinkled with amusement as he recounted this joke someone once told him. His incisive and dynamic way of thinking and conceptualizing ideas and connections increasingly became evident during our interview.
