Abusive Names for Artists / Het Scheldwoordenboek voor

Many Dutch find artists irritating. They seem to live off of welfare, do whatever they like, and can even, sometimes, get rich in the process! As a result, there are as many abusive nicknames for artists as there are artistic forms of expression. From this endless landscape, here is a small selection. The book is based on the collection ‘swear words for artists’ from Dutch artist PJ Roggeband.

WHAT TO DO / WAT TE DOEN

When I tell people that I am an artist with a part-time job, they often give me unsolicited advice on how to make money with art. For years I collected these quotes and eventually made the book WHAT TO DO/WAT TE DOEN. Page 23: ‘Make contact with gay people. They don’t have children, lots of money and a refined taste.’ The book design is by Ingeborg Scheffers. Winner of the Sheffield International Artist Book Prize 2013 and the Fundacio Banc Sabadell, Arts Libris, Barcelona 2014.
