criticismism was an art blog. Between 2009 and 2017 it published original thoughts about works of contemporary art. Author Mark Sheerin also wrote for Hyperallergic, the Arts Desk and Culture24.
criticismism II is a whole new art blog, with a focus on prehistoric parietal art. Or, to be precise, the representations of cave painting which have circulated above ground since their rediscovery.
Please check in here to find interesting ideas (I hope) about the ways in which we mediate the origins of art, and of humanity. I am pursuing doctoral research on this topic at the University of Sussex.
