Anna Maria Matilda Thulin, född 1979-09-23. Fotograf på Malmö Museer, verksamhetsstart 2010.

Donor:The Manual Labor Series, consisting of five wood cut prints and a lasercut wooden plate depicts the human autonomic nervous system and hands injured by repetitive strain. Concerned with the definition of manual labour in relation to cognitive labour forms, the artist dealt with her own working condition as an artist and freelancer against the commissioning power of the Malmø Art Museum. The visual proposition and the gesture of donating her work to this institution, is the first manifestation of a larger research project called Zero Collection, that tries to introduce the rolling jubilee (http://rollingjubilee.org/) and debt resistance as a possible investment for the Malmø Art Museum.
