BFAMFAPhD is a collective that works at the intersection of art, technology, and the political economy. Concerned about the impact of debt, rent, and precarity on the lives of creative people, it asks: what is a work of art in the age of $120,000 art degrees? BFAMFAPhD creates reports, pedagogical tools, and movement syllabi that have been exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design, the Cleveland Institute of Art, and the Brooklyn Museum. Current core members include Susan Jahoda, Vicky Virgin, Emilio Martinez Poppe, Agnes Szanyi, and Caroline Woolard.
At NEW INC, BFAMFAPhD members Martinez Poppe, Jahoda, and Woolard will be developing Of Supply Chains, a card game, text, and interactive teaching tool that traces the life cycle of a business project. Of Supply Chains allows a wide range of choices for organizing work, compensating workers, and producing projects to become visible and open to contestation.
