General policy
Permalink: General policy

This is the web site of the first Stuckist group, founded in 1999 by Charles Thomson and Billy Childish (who left the group in 2001).

It is the policy of this site to publicise the activities of the group, its artists and related activities, and to keep a historical record of this. We also feature news and information on people who have been part of, or associated with, the group in the past. Information about other Stuckist groups is included at our discretion (there are now over 200 independent, artist-led Stuckist groups worldwide), as well as information about any other parties or activities we find relevant or of interest.

The contents of this site are not endorsed by any other organisation, including other Stuckist groups. We do not have any responsibility for, nor do we necessarily endorse, any external sites or organisations (including other Stuckist groups) mentioned on, or linked to by, this site.

It is the aim of this site to create an accurate historical record. To this end we try to ensure factual accuracy. Material is first reviewed editorially and then independently when uploaded. We welcome corrections to any inadvertent mistakes. We also offer "right of reply" to individuals or groups commented on in this site.

This site is for non-profit educational purposes.

Use of images and text
Permalink: Use of images and text

This site exists to promote the work of Stuckist artists and to extend the knowledge and understanding of that work. To that end, material on the site is available free for reproduction, under the guidelines set out below. Permission is granted in good faith, and we reserve the right to withdraw such permission in the event that we consider it has been abused: please note, criticism of our work does not constitute such abuse. Details of images and excerpts from text may usually be used, if clearly marked as such. As regards "commercial use": if other people are getting a fee, or would normally get a fee, for contributing to a particular work, then we expect to get one as well, and require normal commercial clearance to be obtained from us before use. Anyone reproducing "free encyclopedia" Wikipedia articles may also reproduce our material in the context of any such articles, even if those articles are used "commercially". In case of query or to obtain commercial licences, please get in touch as below.

Use of images
Images up to 600 pixels maximum dimension on this site may be used on the following terms. Paintings should be given their title and photos should have the subject identified, e.g. "Stuckist Turner Prize demonstration, Tate Britain, December 20062". The image should be credited to the artist/photographer and this site, e.g. "Jim Dennis, stuckism.com" or where the originator's name is not given, then simply to "stuckism.com". Images may be reduced in size or adjusted for accurate colour.

Use of text
Text on this site may be used on the following terms. The work should be given its proper title and credited to the author(s) and this site, e.g. "Jim Dennis, stuckism.com" or where the originator's name is not given, then simply to "stuckism.com". Excerpts may be used, but should be marked as such, and any missing text marked (e.g. by three dots ...). Otherwise the text should not be modified. An exception to this is where someone wants to modify a Stuckist manifesto written by Charles Thomson and Billy Childish to make their own version of it, in which case specify this is what you have done.

Moral rights
The moral rights of the creator are asserted in all cases.
