Joey Patrickt applies his laser wit in this definitely uncryptic commentary on DKult and Trashpo. This “gag” adds a new statement in the Fluffy vs. Serious debate that is currently raging on the Trashpo front.

Falling short of suggesting outright misogyny among critics, I feel compelled to explain that DKult is no more or no less than a mail art fan club, a tradition going back to Ray Johnson himself. Does DKult attract an unusual amount of attention because it is dedicated to a woman artist? Does DKult attract an unusual amount of attention and perhaps criticism because it is a matriarchy or more precisely a gynarchy? Joey Patrickt manages to raise these issues and questions the definition of Trashpo.

Or is this Joey Patrickt’s application to DKult?

Technically, Joey is a member of DKULTNOCAL (DKult Northern California). But I think he is deserving of his own chapter, which shall be called – of course – DKULTJoey.

Many thanks to Joey!
