“Art criticism is not a mirror to hold up to the art world, but a hammer with which to shape it”
Shower of Kunst
Shower of Kunst is an arts criticism journal founded in 2009. We believe in developing a strong and healthy discourse and community.
Originally formed through recognising the vacuum that exists in Irish visual arts writing, our goal is now to challenge the prevalent modes of art writing.
We place a strong emphasis on the political and embrace an approach to reviewing that is akin to the academic critique. We are not interested in the default position of arts writing as essentially advertising copy for the artist and gallery, but instead offer a candid gaze that asks questions and makes suggestions.
Responsibility for the information and views set out in this website lies entirely with the author(s).
