This project considers classical and neoclassical art as a fundamental facet of white supremacist constructions of “European” superiority. By symbolically “breaking open” the aesthetic, the “otherness” (blackness, “pagan” or “eastern” aesthetics, etc.) is revealed. What is produced is a body of the future, a radical reimagining of our histories that resists the violence of our current dominant culture.

ANTI = against
body = form
