From the J20 Art Strike Statement: We consider Art Strike to be one tactic among others to combat the normalization of Trumpism—a toxic mix of white supremacy, misogyny, xenophobia, militarism, and oligarchic rule. Like any tactic, it is not an end in itself, but rather an intervention that will ramify into the future. It is not a strike against art, theater, or any other cultural form.
It is an invitation to motivate these activities anew, to reimagine art spaces as places where resistant forms of thinking, seeing, feeling, and acting can be produced.
