Episode 42 - (De)Institutional Research Team and The Crisis at The Whitney

Hey friends! Sorry for the delay, OK has been sick! We have a discussion about the on-going protests at The Whitney—it’s effectiveness and possible strategies. Lucia went to the Biennial and has insights; OK attended the museum solidarity day of the protests and spoke with a memember of (D)IRT, The (De)Institutional Research Team, who calls themselves “an autonomous collective of artists, academics, activists, and cultural workers collaborating to reimagine the way cultural institutions are run. We investigate the underlying structures of philanthropy and governance that perpetuate oppressive systems.” If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor or https://d.rip/artandlabor. Follow us on twitter and instagram.
