Legendary artist, professor, and writer (These Bodies That Were Not Ours, Field Guide for Female Interrogators) Coco Fusco and Jessa Crispin discuss recent controversies in the art world about money and representation. Why is disturbing art being targeted for destruction... from the progressive left this time? And who is art for?

Fusco and Crispin discuss the Dana Schutz Emmett Till painting, the ongoing protests at the Whitney, a mural at a San Francisco school, confederate monuments, and other disturbing visual media.
