Hey there Baysiders and Ridgewooders, Art and Labor here, your one and only source for the scandalous lives of brooklyn’s finest backwash. Spotted on the steps of a Glendale bodega, an A&L reuniting with JDJ? There’s nothing O, D, and S love more than a rousing round table on electoralism, but is the DSA really ready to play ball with the big leagues? Democrats aren’t exactly known for playing fair, or rather, playing fair anywhere they’ve already won a power struggle. Eric Adams might have won the throne of Democratic primary candidate for the mayoral race already, but an independent working class has a way of toppling crowns, preferably with guillotines. We’ll just have to see if so called leftists have it in them to reign a little terror. No matter what, though, you know A&L is expropriating all the luscious details.

You know you love me,

xoxo, Art and Labor

Episode 109 – Vida Americana, Zombie Chelsea

Episode 109 - Vida Americana, Zombie Chelsea

We braved covid to bring you another Chelsea dispatch! Nobody stopped us, turns out podcasts are essential work. Consider this the third in a on-going series about the arts and gentrifcation. Last year we processed the opening of Hudson Yards, two years ago we visited the museum of markets before touring Warhol at The Whitney. We return to The Whitney for what is in many ways the polar opposite show. Because of covid it’s been up for a year, but it’s extremely sad to think about how many big buses of students missed out on seeing this show. Socialist realism reminded people what to fight for, it was powerful enough that when the ruling class tried to absorb it, they couldn’t, so they tore it down. It was powerful enough for the spooks to send Jackson Pollock to take from them (theory! just a theory!)
