Episode 86 - Art and Markets

SPOILER ALERT: turns out the zombie was capitalism this whole time!! And it rises from the ashes to remake itself regardless of the size of the market and who benefits from it!! Phew! We discuss the art market discourses happening in small press, commercial art, and fine art. We’re on a sinking ship, but are we discussing our deck chairs or our lifeboats?

Episode 15 - W.A.G.E. & SPX & Marx@200



We went to many events so you didn’t have to. We discuss the Festival Workers Association born during the many controversies of this year’s Small Press Expo. While OK was in Maryland Lucia went to the Marx@200 show at Verso Books, which was a celebration of Peter Frase’s new book “The Four Futures” and included Alfredo Jaar’s piece that is only ever revealed on September 15th. Finally, we discuss an episode we recorded after the W.A.G.E. Rager we attended at Artist’s Space that we’re probably abandoning for being “too drunk” There’s a big chunk about One Piece too!

Chicago & Indianapolis shows:
