About

 

We, The Ignorosophists, were founded in Vienna to follow, live, and dream a certain philosophy — the Ignorosophy. Ignorosophy, as one might guess, builds upon ignorance. Ignorance towards the contemporary system of art. Ignorance towards attempts at finding deeper meanings, certain purposes and intentions in works of art. Ignorance in the face of extensive interpretation, questioning and the setting of borders. And most important of all, ignorance towards following trends and expectations. Being ignorant in the above-mentioned ways, however, opens doors to unrestrained creativity and emotions. It allows us to express ourselves in an honest and direct way, which, in turn, makes possible what we think is the main ambition of our endeavour — to enjoy art in every possible way. Being ignorosophical. Being Ignorosophists.
