Episode 77: “Art Alone Can’t Save the World”

This post was originally published on this site

Welcome back to another edition of Coffee with Comrades! This week, we share the second-half of a two-part special recorded with Serena Viola and Cosby Hayes on art, labor, and cultural production. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Ep. 76 of Coffee with Comrades, “Art(work.” Today, we go global, looking beyond our local community here in Tallahassee at larger struggles and movements and the intercessions (and limitations) of cultural production. We chat about fine art versus street art, proletarian power, and the tensions of being an artist in a time of rising fascism, rabid nationalism, and climate catastrophe.

Music: 

  • Intro: “I Ain’t Got No Home in this World” by Woody Guthrie 
  • Interlude: “Weather” by Tycho
  • Outro: “Numb” by the Devil Wears Prada
