The authors reflect on some pervasive features of contemporary work starting from the independent professionals, a paradigmatic figure of the contemporary capitalist system. Their flexibility and performativity, moulded on the logic of cognitive capitalism, are traits shared by a progressively growing portion of workers. The authors propose the investigation of steering media, taking up the reflections developed by Habermas and Gorz, and foucaultian apparatuses which shape the daily practices of work in order to explore the multiple forms of free work. The analysis of the metropolis conceived as a meta-apparatus and the analysis of significant steering media related to independent professionals are essential, according to the authors, to recognize the cracks of the dominant paradigm and possible spaces for counter-subjectivities.
