yBas, Stuckist, Remodern, amodern, Tracey Emin

Remodernist Manifesto

Good stuff, but I still don’t relate.


Early on in this blog a friend thought this project was ‘amodern’, I prefer that to remodern, post modern, stuckist…


At the origin of Stuckism (in that it is a reaction to her art & calling her ex stuck) is Tracey Emin who is famous for stuff like the unmade bed. Ok, sounds like bullshit, but I can see it in the larger context of her art which takes autobiographical art, (“naked blogging” as I do here to a very mild degree) to the ultimate edge. She exhibits her life, her bed mates names, her underwear, her contraception coil. I think she has some guts, and she does follow through on a concept.

Images, links follow.

Earlier post I made about autobiography.

And link to a comment I made ages ago about biography on another blog.

On the couch with Tracey Emin




I see this column as an open letter, to be read by many. I have always thought the role of an artist, especially one like me, is the role of communicator – to convey emotions, feelings and ideas. It’s not a private pastime. There is no point in being an artist if you do not have an audience.

From her column in the Independent – it is naked blogging!
