Episode two of Collective Imaginings with researcher, writer and performer Jemma Desai, whose document This Work Isn't For Us was released via google doc last year and explores the failures of diversity policy in the visual arts. We discuss our experiences of navigating hostile and inhospitable institutions, and ways we have found to protect our imagination and resist capitalist productivity.
Collective Imaginings is a podcast series curated and hosted by
