Jian Lin investigates creative labour conditions and the formation of creative subjectivities in China in terms of the precariousness these conditions generate. At the same time, she also explores the opportunities creative labour offers subjects from diverse social backgrounds. Her four empirical case studies focus on creative workers in state-owned cultural enterprises, independent filmmakers, international creative workers in Beijing and the newly emerging digital creative class on social media.
