Art and Labor 2 is back! We take a second to decompress and to welcome new cohost Marshall, who’s talking to us today about United Musicians and Allied Workers. The group recently had campaigns bringing attention to SXSW underpaying artists and taking money from the Department of Defense. We talk about building alternative spaces and the inefficiencies of the Armies official E-sports team. If you like us, please consider spreading the good word!

(sorry for bad mic this ep) OK and Sarah warm up the engine a little with a conversation leading from, and leading to, the ethnic cleansing going on in Gaza as we
speak. What is to be done? We weigh the options- mostly, do what you
can, some of which is going to involve the heavy and uncomfortable
work of shittalking a list comedians. how could we ever carry such a
burden! Are you favs on the good list or the bad list?

If you want to send money, there’s a million places, but we’ve donated
to Medical Aid for Palestinians: https://www.map.org.uk/donate/donate

We’re preaching to the choir here most likely, but please don’t be
afraid to speak out- there are lives to be saved

OK and Sarah are joined by two of our absolute favorite cartoonists Alex Degen and Alec Robbins to discuss One Piece both as a comic😤 and as content😩. Alec’s fantastic thread on the “corporate experiment” that is Netflix’s One Piece prompted this excellent convo on art education, WGA/SAG actions, and flattening of culture that happens online. Alex and OK also endorse interesting live action adaptions that happened via ice and in kabuki. We want ART not YOUTUBE BYPRODUCT. We want DIGNITY not SLOP!! They are trying to feed us BUGS when we need REAL FOOD that will nurture our souls and lift our spirits. Isn’t that what One Piece is truly all about??

OK Fox and Eric Kostiuk Willams  return with a recap of festival season. We have criticisms and praises for Flamecon in NYC, Queer Trans Zine Fest in Providence, and Small Press Expo in Bethesda. We also discuss All Dolled Up, an event Eric did the poster for and OK attended in an act of rebellion against attempts to ban trans women from strip clubs. As trauma and fractures rise we retreat into the comforts of the erotic arts and call for greater protections and honors for sexy pictures and sex work.

This one’s been marinating a bit, we got a little bit of atomization on the 1s and 2s, the definitive take on those NPC livestreams, breaking your chains or hamster wheel or death drive or facebook marketplace addiction, some laughter some tears some movie recs, all the stuff to round out your summer before the dreaded Normal Gallery Hours Resuming season (aka, End of Residency Season)

One of us saw Barbenheimer and one of us didn’t. Wouldn’t you know it, that doesn’t stop the take machine from churning here on the new and improved ART AND LABOR 2. That’s right! We have emerged from our chrysalis to influence hearts and minds on a plane of evolution that was higher than before. We have the same hosts, same wandering conversation, and same opening song, but at heart, we have become the sequel to ourselves. Join us as we discuss the international responses to our darling summer blockbusters, with a little historical reference sprinkled in for nutritional value.

Remember back in the day when we used to wax philosophical about the meaning and role of art? Oh you don’t, because this is the first episode you’ve ever listened to? Well buckle up, cuz Lucia printed a new edition of their screed, and they’re here to inculcate the youth. OK leads the OG duo through some thoughtful tangents that would make Alan Watts swoon as they flip through copies of “Visionary Statement 1.5” lovingly riso printed by Hannah Brookman of Looky Here fame. If you listened to this whole episode and it made you want to see some art irl, Lucia’s show SOULCANO is on view at Giovanni’s Room LA until July 29th. If this episode made you want to read the dang zine, then contact @Lucia_Love on IG to get your copy before they’re all confiscated and burned as contraband.
