BONUS – Hannah on William Morris: Revolutionary Art Class Session
/

Hannah Brookman from Looky Here art space in Greenfield Massachusetts schools us on the history of William Morris and the utopian ideals of the Arts & Crafts movement. Hannah is also teaching new course for Constructing the Real on Art Communes which centers around reading the book Art and Labor by Eileen Boris, and watching documentaries on a new collective every week. Should be a great crash course for anyone considering ditching capitalism for that sexy utopia that is living with all your friends in a bucky ball. Course enrollment is open now, so I hope to see y’all around for some learning. Let’s have fun!!

Episode 98 - Modes of Production

We start with some clarity on the question of sex work under communism (well mostly this essay does), but eventually we enter the territory of “we don’t know” when it comes to the very differing left tendencies and strategies. Lucia has a beautiful show of paintings, the gallery is surrounded by beautiful upstate autumn, go see it! Maybe it will inspire similar discussion for you, we certainly can’t crack the question of “what is to be done” alone!!
