“The more regulation you want, that is precisely what art is not about.”

Two very dear friends of mine, Lauren van Haaften-Schick and Kenneth Pietrobono, continue their exploration of art, socialism, activism, and a slew of other isms. They asked me to chat with them about “redistribution” and the success of activist art. Well, they didn’t quite ask me about the second but I talked about it nonetheless. We also discussed my disdain for symbolic artistic acts in law and whether the purchase of a non-functioning vehicle can be deemed to be “successful.” You can listen to the podcast audio here.

If you just want the 3 minute snippet (probably all you need), here it is.
