Reading and discussion of Art Work: A national conversation about art, labor and economics.

Art Work, a project by Temporary Services, is a newspaper that consists of writings and images from artists, activists, writers, critics, and others on the topic of working within depressed economies and how that impacts artistic process, compensation and artistic property. Art News can be downloaded here:; paper copies are available at The AS in The AS. 

This is the first in a series of discussions on Alternative Economies and Art that will take place at The AS in The AS this spring.

More Activities:

We'll get our reading groups back on track soon. Check our website and our next e-news for more info.
Our online library is here:

Publications: We put out a call for work for a journal, but then a journal seemed to monolithic. Instead, The AS in The AS would like to start publishing "pamphlets." Each one would be devoted to a project or paper, and will also include an interview or discussion with the author/artist. If you're interested in submiting something, email

We have lots of proposals, which you can view here. I basically schedule things based on interest and also as soon as I can make it happen.

If you want to do something, do it with The AS in The AS! Propose something: send me an email or fill out this form
