We start with some clarity on the question of sex work under communism (well mostly this essay does), but eventually we enter the territory of “we don’t know” when it comes to the very differing left tendencies and strategies. Lucia has a beautiful show of paintings, the gallery is surrounded by beautiful upstate autumn, go see it! Maybe it will inspire similar discussion for you, we certainly can’t crack the question of “what is to be done” alone!!

*Come to OK’s panel on Sunday!* Welcome to the episode on Mehrwert aka the Marxist concept of Surplus Value. We read an essay by Diederich Diederichsen, it’s super useful for determining the differing placement of art and artists within the class framework. Read it yourself here, and let us know what you think!

We read the entirety of the William Morris essay this podcast is named after! If you have already read Capital vol. 1 you may want to skip to the middle were Morris’ speech really takes off, but it’s a good refresher, plus we do commentary throughout.
