The meaning of working with art and culture: cultural production in contemporary Brazil

Resumo: “In this article I develop a sociology of work with art and culture to analyze the cultural producer in recent
Brazil, focusing on the niche of ‘independent’ music, seeking to understand some of the possible meanings that the activity has for those who perform it. For that, I refer to the study of Counterculture of the 60s to observe the formation of a new meaning for work, manifested by many of the surveyed producers, at least in its form incorporated into the ‘new capitalism’, comparing it with other possible meanings observed. Thus, I briefly present the main theoretical, historical and empirical contributions of each of the three parts of the
thesis, and some of its main results, conclusions, and notes for future research.” Access here.
