Our rage is burning like the rainforest, but our brains are melting as fast as the ice caps, and when the museum wants us to Warm Up, we burst. Even though we aren’t on the International Council of Museums we throw our hats into the definition debate and decide…they should belong to everypony.

A Fucking Didactic Educational AUDIO File! We basically spin a weird collage about surveillance and privacy (a lost cause). A lot of time traveling this episode. We go back in time 5-7 years when folks were rushing Youtube with How To videos like it was the dang gold rush. We receive a prescient transmission from Jack Smith about the commodification of counterculture and the hyper capitalization art fairs were about to cause. We also heed lessons from David Wojnarowicz. Thank you queer history. Folks on the margins are often destroyed by the state, listen to them, and give them space.

*UPDATE* ICE has cancelled all hearings for Monday June 25th at 201 Varick in response to #OccupyICENYC. Follow @MACC_NYC for updates. There are other sites of deportation in the city the protest may move to. Apologies for the sound quality of this episode, we decided it felt better to just continue to hold space at the occupation (please see the previous episode for our conversation with some of the organizers). Lucia is back from Berlin and imparts some insights from collectives over there; from the recently raided anarchist library Kalabalik to the direct action performance art group Center for Political Beauty. We also get into tricky intersections of rainbow capitalism and the potentials of queer liberation and socialism (for more come to this discussion: https://www.facebook.com/events/187818712052570/) Oh, and we started a Lupin the Third section.

Article referenced about murderous white supremacists groups that have never been held accountable:
Feminist art space in Providence:
The anarchist library:
The Center for Political Beauty:
More Germany notes:
This is one of the most famous squats in Berlin
They have been in a weird war with these people
Center for Political Correctness
This is another anarchist spot that has a community music festival I went to
And some hardcore from their lineup
Here’s a link for 325 (the anarchists who keep a ledger of the cop cars they set on fire) but their site is under construction

Call us Anna Delvey ’cause we’re delving into Soho. We get into the early days of some of the most powerful people in the art market, and how their greed has gone on to destroy neighborhoods and countless lives. This episode we try to demystify the “Art World” to better understand its influence. Art has a complicated role in gentrification; the Grayson Perry cartoon about artist neighborhoods has resonated with millions of people in its second life as an internet meme. We tie the idea of Artwashing to precarious economic situations exemplified by Richard Florida and Mistressvilles.

WE CAN’T EAT PRESTIGE! We joined the picket line in front of the Museum of Modern Art to greet the guests at their annual fundraiser “Party in the Garden” The MoMA workers organized their own “Party on the Pavement” to amplify their demand for a fair labor contract. We say hi to our friends Jeff and Maria, and learn what it’s like at the bargaining table. Email the MoMA director, let him know what you think: glenn_lowry@moma.org

Beep beep!! New Art and Labor here! Your favorite podcast focusing on the on-going struggle to survive as an art or cultural worker. Hosted by O.K. Fox and Lucia Love. This episode we fill you in even more social justice activism happening in the late sixties/early seventies. We talk proto Guerrilla Girls, and we trace the legacy of the Black Emergency Cultural Coalition’s pressure on The Met, MoMA, and The Whitney to current protests of The Brooklyn Museum. We despair about the continued lack of representation in these institutions, and ponder the effectiveness of identity-based strategies. We also get into some contextual tangents about Art & Language, The Fox, and Artists Meeting For Cultural Change.
