150 - Tarot for US Empire
/

Plants have been here longer than people and they have some wisdom to share! Last time we did tarot it was a big hit so we’ve conjured a truly intense reading for the future of America. How will the death go down? It’s honestly beautiful to think about, but before that we talk nu nu mental and discuss dignity vs guilt. Let go, let go, be a seed.

148 - Pivot to Metaverse w/ David Turner and Liz Ryerson

Welcome to the Garden of Theory and Praxis, the Graveyard of the Vibes, the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth, it’s Art and Labor! Joined by champions of the pod David Turner of Penny Fractions and Liz Ryerson of The Blood Zone, we reckon with teleology and how it occupies space (almost…as if…it were…a body??), learn a little about how the music and games industries are dealing with the nightmare of NFTs being forced down our throats as the new financial model (watch this space for the Art and Labor stolen jpeg of the Campbell’s soup can, but don’t worry we’re only doing it ironically), and round table on the new Matrix, mostly guided by the reactionary we haven’t killed in our head yet.

Well pholks, know that we tried this week- a hot and fresh Art and Labor from our minds to yours! OK tries to “read” (personally never heard the term) an article to Lucia and Sarah about the Metaverse, and since this is as spoiler-free space, let’s say we might get to that. Total y2k vibes from this episode include our proprietary newgrounds flash game, a /cgl/ easter egg (well, ok, I wish. Maybe it’s more of a “joke that’s just a reference to something”, but that is very post-9/11 vibes too), the generational divide on Seth Rogan, and I think there’s something in there eventually about Basel. This episode is dedicated to the brave Coca farmers of Bolivia, who keep our little art world community going <3

DISPATCH - while you were partying

Warning for live human shit, sexual trauma, suicide, anger, and misery. We had a night on the town to see the new off Broadway production “while you were partying” by Peter Mills Weiss and Julia Mounsey with Brian Fiddyment at Soho Rep! Its a fantastic new play for the irony poisoned, N64 modding, suicidal incel poster psyche of many an “ordinary American” cursed by the internet age. As usual, the NYtimes has no idea what’s going on, but fret not dear reader, we’re just the floating voices that do, and that’s the art and labor promise! Poem, prayer, meme: you decide.

Hannah Brookman from Looky Here art space in Greenfield Massachusetts schools us on the history of William Morris and the utopian ideals of the Arts & Crafts movement. Hannah is also teaching new course for Constructing the Real on Art Communes which centers around reading the book Art and Labor by Eileen Boris, and watching documentaries on a new collective every week. Should be a great crash course for anyone considering ditching capitalism for that sexy utopia that is living with all your friends in a bucky ball. Course enrollment is open now, so I hope to see y’all around for some learning. Let’s have fun!!

Episode 117 - The Museum Union Wave Dossier w/ Maxwell Paparella
/

After a lot of laughs and a few boners, all 4 elemental stones have been carefully nested onto their pedestals, and now we’re emitting lasers onto Leeloo to bring about that wacky 5th element, the Art and Labor podcast! We chat with Maxwell Paparella on his new (enormous) work in Art Papers, a dossier on the ongoing unionization struggle for museum workers in 18 different institutions. Through valiant effort and rhetorical wizardry, we do in fact find good news on planet Earth! Paparella keys us in on some victories for the movement (we love you Nan), and the unique hiccups that come with organizing artists (aka, having to be both inside/outside the gala/protest, although you know, with a quote from Byung-Chul Han that’d be a fantastic start to an artist statement for a show in a humid 9’x6′ room on the fourth floor of a chinatown walkup.

Episode 110 - Work Won't Love You Back w/ Sarah Jaffe

Incredible labor journalist Sarah Jaffe (@sarahjaffe) wrote a new book, and we’re in it! Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone is collection of labor struggles in fields often overlooked, underpaid, or misunderstood. The book is an excellent overview of the type of issues we discuss on this show! Including art jobs, internships, the NGO industrial complex, big tech, retail, gig workers, education, and sports. All through a Marxist feminist lens we vibed with very hard lol. We discuss strategy, the big “was is to be done?” How can we take consciousness raising away from liberal awareness campaigns, pinpoint sites of struggle/support, and heighten contradictions to build a world where love can flourish uninhibited by capitalist extraction.

We’re joined by Eric Shorey (@Eric_Shorey) to discuss the tricky business of wages and performance. We get into the particularities of trying to organize/advocate for better pay from venues, and how different types of performers are pitted against each other. Drag Queens additionally have to structure their nights around an increasingly more mainstream national television show that almost monopolizes drag content.

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.
