We’re finally here – at the third installment of reading “Another Art World” by Nika Dubrovsky and David Graeber. Even if you’re a new listener, you can start here because in the last segment, the author’s promised to finally get to the heart of the matter: What might “another art world” look like?
But – something happened between the last instalment of the essay, published in November 2019, and this installment from November 2020: the pandemic and the anti policing protests of the summer of 2020. Understandably, the authors felt they had to switch gears – so this installment of the essay spends quite some time drawing a parallel between the police state and the art world.
