What is a linocut?

Variant woodcut printmaking technique where linoleum sheet is used to act as the relief surface. The surface is then cut into a V-shaped gouge or chisel design so the raised areas represent a mirror image(reversal) to show printed parts. A roller is used to link the sheet which is then impressed to fabric or paper. A press or hand can be used to do the actual printing.

Anti-art

Anti-art describes artwork which challenges accepted art definitions. The term is said to have been created by artist Marcel Duchamp who worked with the art media called readymades; everyday items presented as art to defy traditional expectations that art should be high art.

Behavior Art

A Chinese equivalent that describes performance art. It is a new term in arts and may be difficult in articulating unless people understand what they are attempting to create. It is however, a flexible concept that focuses on things that make the everyday, common and community things. It is heightened, refined and reflective of how people behave, move or live.

Readymade

Readymade is the term Marcel Duchamp used to describe his artworks made from objects which were manufactured. The French artist first used the term, and artists who work similarly now use it. Duchamp chose functional objects which he felt had visual indifference.
