NOT BANKSY is DEAD and NOT BANKSY will NOT be RESURRECTED 

As it is known NOT BANKSY died in 2008. Now 10 years on NOT BANKSY’s memory is honoured with this NON-RESURRECTION edition by NOT NOT BANKSY. That’s right: NOT NOT BANKSY, not NOT BANKSY.

NOT NOT BANKSY is not NOT BANKSY as NOT BANKSY is dead. These prints are a homage to NOT BANKSY, not BANKSY, by a new artist known as NOT NOT BANKSY who continues the great work of NOT BANKSY and not BANKSY. Some people think it is NOT known if BANKSY was ever involved in the NOT BANKSY project, or if NOT BANKSY is NOT DEAD and in fact is NOT NOT BANKSY. The latter is unprovable but we know categorically that BANKSY was NOT involved in any creation or idea formed by NOT BANKSY, or the THE CONTINUITY NOT BANKSY, and certainly not NOT NOT BANKSY! Is that clear?

NOT NOT BANKSY artworks are made by 2 artists formerly known as STOT21stCplanB who, for the purposes of appearing more intelligible and serious, changed their name to Harry Adams in 2008 and still stand accused of killing NOT BANKSY. They have reverted to STOT21stCplanB to be known as NOT NOT BANKSY specially for this occasion.

Furthermore: Even though the NOT BANKSY works of old are now selling for hundreds of pounds on the secondary market, the artists and we the publisher are sticking to our principle that chasing art market prices is a dire fallacy and have decided to keep this new edition at a reasonable price. May all but the artist profit from it!

What is ART HATE and Other Cuntish Questions

In writing about the Situatiuonists (see previous post) I am reminded of one of my favourite ART HATE poster What is ART HATE? and possibly the best exhibition we ever did at L-13: Storm of Defence: or, What is ART HATE and Other Cuntish Questions.

The poster came first and is based on the story of the Situationists coming to London to give a presentation at the ICA in 1960. When the floor was opened to questions the first one demanded to know what, exactly, is Situationism.
Guy Debord retorted in French:
“We are not here to answer cuntish questions” to which the Situationists walked out and went to the bar.

In The Beginning

Welcome to the L-13 News & Archive Pages

The idea behind this section is to write regular instalments that provide important anecdotal information about some aspect of our illustrious past. These accounts will be sporadic and in no particular order, but as this is the first entry it seems fitting to start at the beginning.
