We were joined by Zachary Small (@zacharyhsmall) to discuss their 5-part series on Art Handlers for Hyperallergic. There are discussions of gruesome workplace injuries as well as the infuriating ways employers skirt responsibility. We even hear a wild tale involving the the Emancipation Proclamation and some Mountain Dew. If you have any tips for Zach please email zachary@hyperallergic.com.

So beautiful to see artworkers on the cover of the paper of record! Too bad NYT whiffs it so hard—for an article about worker struggle they sure showcase a lot of bosses. We discuss how the media frames systemic issues in defeatist or individualist terms, we push against the scarcity mindset, encourage more decentralized actions, and urge everyone to demand public museum ownership. This is the episode for our takes on “The Tear Gas Biennial,” and it’s complicated! PS the new Lion King is just The Veldt come true.
