Founded by artist Nikitas Kavouklés. Specializes in “the art of satire in
the world of art” “Its many articles are not merely takedowns of the
commercial excesses of today’s art world – that would be too easy. Instead,
the site is filled with informative and amusing twists on satirical standbys
and contains articles and posts written by volunteer, highly expert professionals
of questionable backgrounds and abilities, some of whom are artists, critics,
and provocateurs, both real and imagined, from around the globe and beyond.
Provides information on a video by artist Bill Claps“ explores the often
incomprehensible language used by many curators, writers, critics, and
other art insiders, which has alienated much of the art-viewing public.“
In the video, the artist captures people’s thoughts and feelings about
contemporary art, and includes footage shot in the streets, galleries
and art fairs of New York, and in several countries in Europe.
