Welcome to Art and Popular Culture, a nobrow wiki for the loftiest of intellectuals and the most jaded hedonists; exploring the hidden links between "mainstream" and "underground" culture.

Methodology

"Method of this work: literary montage. I have nothing to say only to show. [...]" -- Walter Benjamin
This website is a "rhizome" and allows for multiple, non-hierarchical entry and exit points. --J. W. Geerinck

Philosophy

“In the illusory babels of language, an artist might advance specifically to get lost, and to intoxicate himself in dizzying syntaxes, seeking odd intersections of meaning, strange corridors of history, unexpected echoes, unknown humors, or voids of knowledge… but this quest is risky, full of bottomless fictions and endless architectures and counter-architectures… at the end, if there is an end, are perhaps only meaningless reverberations.” --"A Museum of Language in the Vicinity of Art" (1968) by Robert Smithson
