146 - Mr. Beast's Serfs (Part 1)
/

Well pholks, know that we tried this week- a hot and fresh Art and Labor from our minds to yours! OK tries to “read” (personally never heard the term) an article to Lucia and Sarah about the Metaverse, and since this is as spoiler-free space, let’s say we might get to that. Total y2k vibes from this episode include our proprietary newgrounds flash game, a /cgl/ easter egg (well, ok, I wish. Maybe it’s more of a “joke that’s just a reference to something”, but that is very post-9/11 vibes too), the generational divide on Seth Rogan, and I think there’s something in there eventually about Basel. This episode is dedicated to the brave Coca farmers of Bolivia, who keep our little art world community going <3

We originally recorded this episode as a Snackcast, our bonus feed, but liked it too much. Apologies for any munching and crunching, and for the even more causal tone than normal. We discuss working in Chelsea and art fairs as young people, insidious bootstrap mentalities, and the importance of centering marginalized workers. Don’t fall into spectacle mindset, if you must make a banana response please consider the janitorial/service workers that are often forgotten in this discourse (read about their protest in Miami here).

Warning that this episode is gets into some heavy allegories, we’re very raw in our feelings. That said, we discuss the latest on Amazon NYC, which despite the AOC spin, is NOT A WIN. We also touch on the latest Art Miami Basel controversy spectacle, and the state of gentrification and unionization. Plus we make a bunch of references to Rick and Morty, The Irishman, and Promare. It’s a postmodern nightmare. If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor. Follow us on twitter and instagram.
