The Arts Fuse welcomes a new character to their extended universe. Deanna Marie Costa, Arts Fuse critic and editor, joins Matt and Lucas to discuss a range of topics related to art, politics, and propaganda.
First, Deanna introduces herself and talks about what she covers for The Fuse. Then the panelists dive into Blake Maddux's review of Jennifer Ratner-Rosenhagen’s The Ideas That Made America. A discussion about the social and social implications of Sleeping Weazel's The Audacity: Women Speak, follows. The performance is a powerful show using real life stories of women who have gone through some truly gut-wrenching situations. Finally, AOC's new optimistic short film published by The Intercept gets put under the microscope. Her vision of a Green New Deal America, and the kind of art that might help make that vision a reality, raises new questions and new possibilities.
