Stuckism home page | Manifestos


This manifesto was written by Charles Thomson in 1978, when he was a student, and posted on a studio wall in Maidstone Art College. It was printed in a limited unnumbered edition on a Roneo duplicating machine, using a paper stencil. The title lettering was cut out of the stencil, and the imprint of the printing drum fabric can be seen on the letters "ART". The influence of some of the ideas in the manifesto can be seen in the Stuckist manifestos co-written in 1999 and 2000 with Billy Childish.
