Description: What we know to be art and what makes art legible as art has come to be defined in the negative. It is what the poor are not. Who are the art world's poor? They are objects of charity to be tended by the very same patrons who deal, collect and secure tax relief from the value of art. They define the boundary around the piety of wealth. Projects in Public Record's P.O.P. series sound out the limits of moral and aesthetic value.

Description: In the late 1980's, ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) defined itself as: "A non-partisan group of individuals united in anger to end the AIDS crisis through direct action." Today, what anger mobilizes the 40 million people worldwide living with HIV? Can other sentiments - disappointment, frustration, sadness - fuel collective action? "The AIDS Uncanny" series listens for a remainder of AIDS activism haunting the present.

Description: Sound artists, electronic musicians and audio activists give a listen to the global struggles of migrants. Like any listening, the one who listens unavoidably enters the field of sound. As the conditions of transnational culture and markets enunciate the transnational artist, that artist bears a distinct relation to migrant histories and politics. The Transistors series of sound projects gives that relation a space to be heard.
