A Temporary Jam-i-festo for Arting.

Updated: Jun 17, 2020

9th October 2014.

I do things that do not rely on the funding structure and the support of the rich.

I perform (if I perform) in environments that do not belong to the bourgeois arts system.

A poor arting.

An arting that doesn’t rely on audience pounds.

An arting that doesn’t rely on being reviewed.

An arting that does not seek to be recognised by any particular body of people or institution.

An arting that temporarily manifests points along the process of arting rather than making art products for sale and promotion.

An arting that does not seek recognition or reputation.

An arting that does not self-promote.

An arting without final product, only interim reports.
