135 - Zombie Transgression
/

Transgression: who is she? Is she real? Is she dead? OK and Lucia are back to their roots, being ON ONE. Covering a range of topics that all make sense together I swear. We start with the Laura Kipnis essay “Transgression, an Elegy” which is difficult to separate from Kipnis herself, the fucking harper’s letter again, etc; but we also tie it to China, and how other countries handle celebrity influence. Can China erase Billionaires? Can they make gaming good?? Will they start making more gay shows less illegal??? I, dear listener, want to believe. ps- the Kanye take is this episode also.

Episode 121 – Intersectional CIA

Episode 121 - Intersectional CIA
/

The state continues to pinkwash, reaching it’s deepest pits. We continue our thread of takes on the CIA rebrand, and push back against the stupidpol takes permeating the discourse. Some of the usual terminally online suspects think intersectionality is a concept to completely disregard because of co-option. Nobody’s saying to throw away the labor movement when it’s also often absorbed or pandered to by liberals. These struggles are linked, and are more likely to win demands when in solidarity with each other. It’s very clear to anyone who regularly touches grass. The world is burns while the western left debates PMCs again. Free Palestine within our lifetime.

Episode 18 – Fuck off Paglia

Episode 18 - Fuck off Paglia







/

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.

Episode 3 - Black Emergency Cultural Coalition and Women Artists in Revolution







/

Beep beep!! New Art and Labor here! Your favorite podcast focusing on the on-going struggle to survive as an art or cultural worker. Hosted by O.K. Fox and Lucia Love. This episode we fill you in even more social justice activism happening in the late sixties/early seventies. We talk proto Guerrilla Girls, and we trace the legacy of the Black Emergency Cultural Coalition’s pressure on The Met, MoMA, and The Whitney to current protests of The Brooklyn Museum. We despair about the continued lack of representation in these institutions, and ponder the effectiveness of identity-based strategies. We also get into some contextual tangents about Art & Language, The Fox, and Artists Meeting For Cultural Change.

Much is pulled from the book “Art Gangs: Protest and Counterculture in New York City” by Alan W. Moore published by Autonomedia in 2011 and “Exhibiting Authenticity: The Black Emergency Cultural Coalition’s Protests of the Whitney Museum of American Art, 1968-71” by Caroline V. Wallace published in Art Journal in 2015.
