Funism and Stuckism

I recently heard the term “Stuckism” at a C.G. Jung Society lecture and finally got around to googling. Thereby encountering another new word: Funism.

I like the definition:

Funism and Stuckism both promote enjoyable and accessible art firmly rooted in our own times, believing that art should be as much fun to look at as it is to think about, and intellectually engaging and challenging without being elitist.

A little shocked to do a second google search and see this item appear on Page 2.

Anyhow, here’s an excerpt from about.com
