The Mistakist Declaration by Harmony Korine


1. i have never been one to gravitate toward the labelling of things. But i feel forced to declare my adherance to a mode of creation known as "mistakism"

2. i am a "mistakist" and all the work I produce adheres to the tenants attached to the label/movement.

3. (factors involved include)

4. All modes of work exist to produce a single body of work. each facet builds upon the other.

5. you can never differentiate between the seperate modes of creation.

6. A completely unified aesthetic.

7. Mistakes are good.

8. there is no such thing as a true mistake. only a more modern rethinking.

9. Suicide is a show of strength.

10. only in randomness and "mistakes" can one truely announce what is too deep to express in a direct and true way.

11. football games, science projects and explosions.

12. rather than direct a scene - document the action

13. Provocations

14. Heritage - Lineage - Prejudice.

15. grammer means more when words are mispelled and used incorrectly in the traditional sense of the word.

16. ----------------

17. Jokes without Punchlines.

18. Hermits and rural Lonliness

19. A "Mistakist" must believe in God over all else.

this is how I made Julien Donkey Boy
The DOGME 95 is early "Mistakism."
