Ideology, Ableism, and Capitalism: A Talk by Emily Barker | Live from the Whitney

Whitney Biennial 2022 artist Emily Barker aims to show how “the seemingly mundane built environment and the mass production of objects harms people every day.” For this talk, Barker shares the artistic and intellectual formation that led them to this intersectional critique. They discuss the ways in which ableism is inherent to capitalism and embedded in everything from everyday objects to privatized healthcare and austerity politics.
