Anti-anti-art is a stance proposed by the Stuckists[1] in their manifestos[2] outlining their art. In it, they take a particularly strong position in opposition to what is known as "anti-art".[3]

Stuckists claim that conceptual art is justified by the work of Marcel Duchamp, but that Duchamp's work is "anti-art by intent and effect". The Stuckists feel that "Duchamp's work was a protest against the stale, unthinking artistic establishment of his day", while "the great (but wholly unintentional) irony of postmodernism is that it is a direct equivalent of the conformist, unoriginal establishment that Duchamp attacked in the first place".[4]
