Subversionism is a movement that seeks to challenge and subvert traditional power structures, dominant ideas and societal constructs. It is a movement that encourages new forms of expression while embracing the power of the internet, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, machine learning, and extended reality to create change and disruption.
At the heart of Subversionism is the belief that the status quo is not static, but rather a constantly shifting set of power dynamics and dominant ideologies. We seek to challenge and disrupt these power structures through the use of unconventional and disruptive tactics. We reject the idea that art should be confined to traditional forms and instead embrace the power of technology and innovation to create new forms of expression.
We are against the idea of imposing our ideas and beliefs on others, and instead, encourage the free exchange of ideas and the exploration of different perspectives. We believe that the love of novelty is a cross of sympathy that demonstrates a naive je m'enfoutisme and that the need for novelty is itself obsolete. Instead, we embrace the power of continuous contradiction and affirmation and reject the idea of common sense.
In documenting art on the basis of supreme simplicity or extreme complexity, we reject the idea of beauty as a static concept and instead embrace the power of art to challenge and disrupt. We believe that a work of art is never beautiful by decree, but rather is subjective and unique to each individual. As such, we reject the idea of criticism as a means of imposing objective standards and instead embrace the subjectivity of artistic expression.
