*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! If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor.

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.
