The International
Post Dogmatist Group

Our Activities

The Ontological Museum is the ‘Proof of Life’ of the International Post Dogmatist Group. It is a record of the nature of our being as a group. The Group was first formed in 1987 as a response to Post Modernism. The Group calls itself the ‘Official Avant Garde’ because each member is encouraged to communicate through the persona or nom de plume of an office, chair, desk, bureau, facility, institution, etc.  The Ontological Museum is, itself, such a persona. More on this elsewhere…

To the right are a few examples of works in the permanent collection. The collection is predominately an accumulation of works donated by artists from all over the world either as independent gifts or for various past projects and exhibitions.

the future is near

“…Therefore,… the conception of the Avant Garde is discarded as a general movement forward toward a utopian external and is reoriented to a general movement inward…”
