OK and Lucia discuss burnout, survival gigs, the realities of gender presentation, and universal emotions. How does art influence the ruling class?

Let us read to you! This time an essay by Sami Siegelbaum in Selva Journal. Here is an excerpt: “although historical and dialectical materialism formed the basis of Supports/Surfaces’ theory and practice, it was not ‘art for the people.’ Instead, it was a ‘theoretical and ideological weapon for the petit bourgeois intelligentsia’ who would later join or ally with the working class. This thesis introduced the Maoist emphasis on the re-education of intellectuals into the sphere of French painting, while also acknowledging the limitations of a propagandistic figurative art.” Read the whole piece here, including pictures and footnotes.
