Stuckism (A Conversation)
In this text, which takes the form of a conversation and is preceded by a short introduction, the ARTMargins collective seeks to draw the readers’ attention to a global artistic community known as Stuckism. The contribution highlights some of the most conspicuous issues raised by the Stuckists. For more than a decade Stuckism has critiqued the mainstream contemporary art world, accusing it of being at the mercy of global speculative capital; Stuckism also questions the mainstream aesthetics of conceptualism and its insistence upon de-materialized artistic practices. Instead Stuckism calls for respect for traditional or fine arts media, providing in the meantime an example of forging global cooperation among artists from various countries, without or even in spite of a lack of corporate support.
