About the Author

Claudio Celis Bueno completed a PhD in Critical and Cultural Theory at Cardiff University, Wales. Currently, he is an associate researcher at Diego Portales University, Chile.


In this insightful and readable book, Claudio Celis develops an immanent critique of the attention economy that draws together work from the best of Italian post-Marxism and poststructuralism in order to demonstrate just how inventive capitalism is at finding new ways of extracting value from human activity and, equally, just how flexible our critical tools must be if we are to expose the continuing contradictions of such exploitation. His piercing analyses of the relationship between labour, value and power culminate in an unparalleled account of how the attention economy traps us in both machinic enslavement and forms of social subjection. For everyone interested in Lazzarato, Berardi, Negri, Stiegler, Deleuze and Guattari this is a must read book. -- Iain MacKenzie, Centre for Critical Thought, University of Kent
This research is one of the rare attempts of a further integration between information studies and Marxist political economy. Claudio Celis explores the notion of 'valorising information' as a conceptual tool to unveil the political dimension condensed in each digital bit. -- Matteo Pasquinelli, visiting Professor, University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe
Cognitive capitalism. Affective capitalism. The Information Economy. Are these new and unprecedented conditions? Or are they just the latest disguises of capitalism as usual? Actually, it's a bit of both. In The Attention Economy, Claudio Celis lucidly explores the contours of our 24/7 current mode of production, where information is plentiful, but attention is scarce, and where it becomes increasingly difficult to separate work from play. -- Steven Shaviro, Wayne State University
