You're looking for this -- "I remember reading recently – but cannot locate the reference! – of an artist or curator who realised that while for Marx the issue was ownership of the means of production, their own preoccupation was with ownership of the means of distribution/reception or something like that. If anyone can help me re-locate that reference that would be great!"
This idea came from Nam June Paik. He contrasted controlling the means of distribution with Marx's idea of seizing the means of production.
