“It is my pleasure to contact you through this medium”
with David Hall and Julia Pello
“It is my pleasure to contact you through this medium” is a heavily mediated performative lecture that constellates the forms and materials of market speculation, content provision, selfhelp listicles, DIY tutorials, and the promise of self-realized, individual liberation. Framed and presented as an employee orientation, “It is my pleasure” provides limiting tools for engaging, resisting, and submitting to technological control while refocusing the subjugation of capital away from subjecthood and toward project-hood: the endless refashioning and reinventing of class struggle as a self-realized struggle with oneself.
