We tackle the art world’s relationship to health care (spoiler: if you’re in the US, it hardly exists). We also discuss the massive societal failures that are actively causing mass death for chronically ill or  differently abled people. Finally, we get into the government’s fraught and complicated relationships with the pharmaceutical and insurance industries. Read Artie and Beatrice’s pieces:

This episode we dive into the criticism surrounding Red Scare and their recent profile in The Cut.  Mostly we discuss the ideology shaped by Camille Paglia, an individualist feminist who aligns herself with the alt-right favorite’s dad Jordan Peterson. We try to appeal for lefty media unity, and find some queer relief from the writings of Mary Beard, Ursula K Le Guin, and admitted normie Peter Frase.

Matthew Thurber joins us as our first in-studio guest!! We discuss his new book Art Comic, now available through Drawn & Quarterly. The book has direct parallels to our lives, it’s kinda nuts, I’m still not over it. We discuss art school problems, new models, ideals, concessions, and debate the merits and pitfalls of book fairs. A big highlight is the part when we all break out Jack Smith impressions. DIY art? Conceptual art? Queer art? All eventually gets sucked up into the dreaded market. We’re gonna work together and fight our way out of this mess. We must!!

We got a modest amount of funding to travel to the Midwest to participate in Erin K Drew’s amazing art talk show, Putty! Although we had some incredible support, we definitely returned to NYC in the red. Please consider supporting us on Drip for the full Putty show including a heated discussion we get into with the artists Maura Jasper & William Keihn. Erin’s about to embark on a tour of her own, you must go see this fun and informative show!! We were also visited with The Condo Association to discuss the question “What would a unionized art world look like?” We had a small and super fun show at a witch store called Space Oddities as well!! Thank you so much to everyone that hosted us, and shared your amazing neighborhoods with us.

Go to the 3rd Anti-Columbus Day Tour: https://www.facebook.com/events/235077237185003/ We build on our “Artwashing and Soho” episode using our direct experiences and observations of gentrification in our neighborhoods. We do a “Goofus and Gallant” for anti-gentrication art. Shoutout to the locals, but also these thoughts can be applied all over the place. It’s a layered topic, but I think we illustrate our points well even though I have a bad cold.

We went to many events so you didn’t have to. We discuss the Festival Workers Association born during the many controversies of this year’s Small Press Expo. While OK was in Maryland Lucia went to the Marx@200 show at Verso Books, which was a celebration of Peter Frase’s new book “The Four Futures” and included Alfredo Jaar’s piece that is only ever revealed on September 15th. Finally, we discuss an episode we recorded after the W.A.G.E. Rager we attended at Artist’s Space that we’re probably abandoning for being “too drunk” There’s a big chunk about One Piece too!

We go through the demands of Bad Art World’s A contribution towards a programme for the arts on a brutally hot August evening in NYC. It’s a contemporary application of Trotsky’s manifesto on revolutionary art. “Eighty years ago the world was entering another great opening. Then, too, there was a gap between what was necessary to defeat capitalist catastrophe and workers’ general political understanding.”
