BONUS - Picasso's Guernica: Revolutionary Art Class Session

What is the lasting legacy of anti-war depictions? Is there revolutionary potential? OK does a presentation for the Constructing the Real class on Revolutionary Art. Picasso’s Guernica connects the brutal massacre from the Spanish Civil War to My Lai in Vietnam and torture in Iraq. Taking the commission from the Spanish republicans also changed the previously apolitical Picasso into a communist (didn’t help with the misogyny tho.)

Episode 7 - Museums in an Age of Planetary Civil War


Art is being used to fund and perpetuate war. The stateless wealthy use the art market as a tool to extend and maintain the class divide. Learn all about it in this mostly serious and depressing episode. My cat lightens the mood at one point. I wonder if the next 20 episodes of the show will just be us discussing a different Hito Steyerl essay every week.
