Please join us at patreon.com/tortoiseshack
In this Reboot Republic podcast, Rory & Tony chat with the artist Spice Bag, who’s picture of depicting a famine eviction with modern day Gardai elicited a massive reaction.
We discuss what were Spice Bag’s motivations in developing the picture, the legitimacy of the parallel between the famine evictions and todays housing crisis, how all art is political, and art can express and elicit a reaction and response that is essential in engaging people with social crises. You can order the picture here, all funds go to homeless charity:https://spicebagmerch.bigcartel.com/product/eviction-print?fbclid=IwAR3sD3s-NG-VMg5z650xUySWhEsFxv9rJLYTg4oPljfT3UU45dVwOUyp2VE
