WARNING: This episode discusses some offensive and politically charged material. For people who would like to avoid the guess-work The Whole Rabbit, despite our bizarre sense of humor, is aligned strongly to the values of liberty and inclusion. We discuss how aesthetics is an important component of fascist movements which weaponizes beauty and cultural norms to commit violence against those who do not conform with its narrow ideas. If that sounds like too messy of a topic for you today we suggest maybe going to a jazz club, burlesque or museum near you.
Break out your canvas, hot dog water and some yellow paint made of mustard and possum tears because this week we are going deep into the world of Modern Art, the CIA’s involvement in proliferating it and what it all has to do with the evils of fascism.
