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.
