Hey folks! Ding dong Kanders is dead (if only), we catch up on the news we missed, and finally dig into Red Bloom Collective’s Art Workers’ Inquiry. It’s a super robust survey, we encourage everyone to take it themselves here. We didn’t end up having time to complete the second part of the inquiry, but we hope to finish it up soon (perhaps with some of the folks who created it). In the meantime check out our bonus episode where we do a quiz to see if we’re related to aliens.

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.
