well - I mean not that all Neoism is fake but that this was one of a group
of movements or -isms with no artistic intention (yup, anti-art is a good
definition for neoism I think... the fact is that anti-art tends to be a
form of art itself... ;))))

by the way, other less known movements have really nothing artistic. The
Inismo I mentioned is one.
It is just a guy waking up in the morning and pretending he's part of
something (the inist guy is into mail art and other stuff but he never did
anything to distinguish himself from other movemnts...) but actually there
is no idea at all behind the -ism... this is why I used the world "fake".

Btw - can I start POST-neoism here and now? ;)
