178 - Music & Labor Penny Fractions Panel w/ David Turner, Joey La Neve DeFrancesco, and Phillip Golub
OK opens this panel by accosting the Nowadays crowd, a necessary struggle session to ground the conversation physically to art venues’ position to PR, finance, and real estate. We then discuss strategies and wins from music worker organizing with members of Union of Musicians and Allied Workers and Music Workers Alliance. We are honored to be in the Penny Fractions family, congratulations to David for 5 amazing years of critical research on the music industries. Support him here. For the second half of the evening, which discussed music streaming with Liz Pelly and Cherie Hu, follow the Money 4 Podcast.
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?
