On January 22, Domy Books, Austin will host Art Work: A National Conversation About Art, Labor, and Politics, produced by Temporary Services, an independent, Chicago-based collective comprised of Brett Bloom, Salem Collo-Julin and Marc Fischer. Art Work is a newspaper and website that will use Domy as Austin’s distribution hub. It consists of writings from artists, activists and academics on the topic of working amidst depressed economies and how that impacts artistic process, compensation and artistic property. The newspaper will be distributed throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

The independently published, 40-page paper (printed at The Plain Dealer press) features the writings of Julia Bryan-Wilson, author of Art Workers: Radical Practice in the Vietnam Era (2009) and Work Ethic (2003); Holland Cotter, New York Times Art Critic and 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner for criticism; Christina Ulke, Marc Herbst, and Robby Herbst, editors for The Journal of Aesthetics and Protest; Harrell Fletcher, visual artist, and many more.

Austin’s Domy Books will collaborate with Houston’s SKYDIVE to present a special series of weekend-long programming as a means of creating new conversation between members of both artist communities. The events will kick off on Friday evening in Austin, with an exhibition of photographs of local artists and a conversation with members of Temporary Services about labor and artistic practice. The weekend will continue on Saturday in Houston with a Free School session and dialogue about resource sharing between these two vibrant cities.
