Episode 126 Art and Crisis w/ Sam Lefebvre and Lor O'Connor
/

Beautiful Bay Area babes Sam Lefebvre and Lor O’Connor came to town and we had us a glorious struggle session about, what else, the precarious and confusing class positioning of artists. Plus, what should artworkers and activists demand wrt public control of museum endowments and governance? Also, rent boards are HR for land antagonisms for real!!! We even debate post-capitalist horizons and if it’s possible to dissolve the secondary markets. Did I mention Lor is assisting cyborg feminist hero Lynn Hershman Leeson??

This week we’re joined by artist, writer, and joke band member Alex Bienstock (@personality_sculptor). He performs his meta-manifesto We, the Post-Artists then we discuss violence, the internet, and society’s relationship to the concept of cringe. Upsetting both the normies and the hipsters is the goal, it’s beautiful.

Episode 6 - A Drunken Intro to Hito Steyerl







/

HITO STEYERL DANK MEME STASH! Hey ya’ll, we’ve got some FEELINGS this episode. Half this episode is venting about some strange/shitty art world jobs we’ve had. We also mention decolonization practice, Walter Benjamin, cultural Marxism, and Imperfect Cinema as a foundation for Steyerl’s In Defense of Poor Image. Accessibility is the key word of this ep. It’s extremely hot in New York City! It’s punishingly hard to focus. We drank a couple cold ones and left the AC on so this is a long ep with a little rumbling sound in the background. I’m not going to apologize, we needed that AC to pod.
