Anon, Good Nurse!

Catalog Number: 
Chapbook, Anon, Good Nurse!
Date: 
October 18, 2008
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
The anonymity movement is a movement against the perversion of the aesthetic experience; a movement against the categorization & generalization of art; a movement away from erroneous metonymy. The unchecked adolescence of the aesthetic experience has led to an identity-centered, egotistical atmosphere and existence of art. What this new interaction of the observer and the art has begot is an overdiagnostic art theory, concerning itself with nothings and unmerited subjective judgments: removing the importance of craft & versification, and relying on the use of mass media & aristocracy to place importance on the identity of the artist, so that the importance placed by the observer on the art is minimal, in favor of, instead, the name of the artist by whom it was crafted.

Things That Matter

Catalog Number: 
Zine, Things That Matter
Date: 
December 2008
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
It seems that this zine came out of a 2 in the morning conversation between two friends, Jamie and Katie. They discuss the all-too-common trap that many activist communities fall into: an ironic reiteration of the very hierarchies they try to dismantle. The authors seek to validate all types of "activism" and challenge the very definition of activism itself.
