While the global financial crisis promised the ruin of neoliberal ideology, the past decade or so has shown the durability and obstinacy of the cultural obsession with entrepreneurial self-development and work. 

This collection of essays reconsiders labour and laziness in order to think through the relationship of art and visual culture to post-work politics. Edited by David Attwood and Francis Russell, The Art of Laziness asserts that laziness can be an artful pursuit and that—because of its artfulness—this pursuit is a type of work.
