A video I made in 2014 “Eroottinen prekariaatti 2 | Erotically Precariat 2” has received a takedown notice on youtube. The 58 min long compilation shows extracts from work themed porn movies. No sex or nudity is visible… Only intros were workers negotiate and flirt with clients and each others. When they begin to undress a new intro scene cuts the action. The scenes are organized by types of labor (construction scenes, other blue-collar workers, office workers, creatives etc.).
One part where a worker seduces a coworker, has a 40s segment where “Who Knows” by Jimi Hendrix is heard. I’m now in a legal battle with Capitol Records and have argued that the the compilation is an artwork and that I have fair use rights to the material. If I lose my youtube account will be taken down. The video is currently part of a Circus Maximus production “House of Delights” at Kunstverein Neukölln in Berlin (by request of Milla Martikainen).
