Clever Men’s Art is a response to the fact that the art world gladly incorporates feminism, immaterial labour, care work, unprofessionalism, anti-hierarchical structures, institutional critique and everyday aesthetics as long as they are authored by men.
Clever Men’s Art Clever Men’s Art exposes the art world’s mechanism of endorsement as empty, ridiculous, repetitive, megalomaniac and boring phrases: A system of mutual self-validation in which a harmless and anticipated criticality is the token exchanged.
Clever Men’s Art is a joke about Clever Men’s Art.
