Masking as Performance Art in the Contemporary Economy
BVAA member Marisa has written an article for Fine Print magazine! It's all about the labour of masking in the arts industry, and how languaging this labour might help place one in solidarity with all contemporary workers who share the burdens of affective labour and the pressures to perform.
Marisa loves discussing how the production systems of the art industry affect artistic labour, and this article has a cool overview of how that happens. You can also listen to them read it with their signature cool, soothing vocal prosody.
