Deathnography Podcast #5 - Is School Bad? Does Art Suck? Communism and the Academy ft Taylor Genovese and McKenna Gray

In this episode of the Deathnography Podcast, I talk to two leftist scholars about Marxism, subtle anti-communism in the academy, and art history. Taylor Genovese explains the neoliberal co-option of radical politics in the corporate university. McKenna Gray tells us about their time in a conservative art college, and the colonial roots of museums.

McKenna Gray has also prepared a reading list to accompany this podcast, about the relationship between capitalism and contemporary art: www.mckennagray.com/deathnography
