Dave Beech is reader in art and Marxism at Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon, University of the Arts London. He is the author of Art and Labour (Brill, 2020), Art and Postcapitalism (Pluto, 2019) and Art and Value (Brill, 2015), which was shortlisted for the Deutscher Memorial Prize. Beech is an artist who worked in the collective Freee (with Andy Hewitt and Mel Jordan) between 2004 and 2018. His solo art practice revisits the critical traditions of photomontage and documentary film through an engagement with the status of photography by producing sequences of digital prints cut out of the archive of photo books.
