  Article Content


Neoism was an avant-garde anarchist movement set out to defy its own explanation.

A paradox is created, however, when trying to explain defied explanation. This paradox is similar to subverting the dominant paradigm, in which the subverter becomes the new paradigm and must then be subverted.

To put it differently, the aim of Neoism is for the creation of a situation in which a definition of Neoism would make no sense.
