Believe or not, Asinus did it himself, and it worked.

It’s a type of thing, people will say “Well, what is this??? I could do it too!!!”

And we will answer ” Yeah, you are right, but we DID it ;)”

P.S. So now it’s your turn to join the movement, and let’s make Asinus a reality (just by going to this link ) or here

BS as an essential part of art (maybe not Asinusism, maybe not, maybe not, maybe not,maybe not)

Asinusism as a new wave

Invisible Dictatorship

You say you want a revolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world…

Beatles, Revolution

    Asinusism is a doctrine and philosophy which is still in development, and always will be.

Asinusism (Asinusdonkey (Latin)) is a new wave in art, which includes both the way of making art, and the final product, presented in an Asinus way (donkey-like). It’s a very new way of seeing the world, and representing in art, and still is in development. Compared to cynical approach, Asinusism is more calm in criticizing the world.  Instead, it’s is trying to give some “tips” how to solve the problems, but never solves them by itself.

Just as cynicism is  from Ancient Greek κυνικός (kynikos), meaning “dog-like”, Asinusim is from Latin word Asinus – donkey. Asinusism promotes a Donkey-like life.

Asinusism is trying to bring its own type of anarchism to the art, especially to film. The art making process is not ruled by the producing system, it’s an “invisible dictatorship” of artists. In Asinusistic “invisible dictatorship” no one admits, nor is imposed on anyone.

Asinuses (followers of Asinusical school) don’t seek anything for themselves. The Art making process is based on joy (even if the art project is dramatic, depressive etc.), because Asinuses believe, that the art product will have a better quality if it’s produced in this way.

One of the common reasons of art movements is not accepting the status quo like Dadaism or anti-art does.

For more than 100 years filmmakers were trying to use film for different services with different ways.  As a “new” form of art, filmmakers were trying to fill the gap (in comparison with “older” forms of art) to make movies of different genres, recreate literature, drawings, philosophy, reuse music, theater, etc.

Asinusism is trying to bring “another” art. Like German  “Absolute film” movement from 1920s, it tries different, non traditional approaches to motion picture.

“Absolute film” rivaled the Condition of music – not illustrations of music. In Asinusistic art/movies caring for “feel” in the piece is much more important than the “look” of it.

Film, as other forms of art, was going through different phases of history, and as a part of the world, was influenced from the things happening in the world. Nowadays, when technology is cheap and available for masses, film-making faces new challenges.

 Asinusism doesn’t have any type of Manifesto, because it believes in the right of  “upgrading” itself unlike “Dogme 95 Manifesto”, which gives lots of freedom to artist, by takes some creative freedoms from them.

Like Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinderberg (originators of Dogme 95 manifesto and the “Vow of Chastity” ) Asinusism is inspiring artists not to stop in their art, and think about their abilities and how to use them.

The new movement doesn’t rely on authorities,  nor thinks, that the “truth” in art depends on authorities, because of the argument being false . The movement knows and admits the value of the artist, especially the ones’ who bring new art, new language in cinema.

   Soviet director Sergei Parajanov’s closest friend Mikhail Vartanov said: “ Besides the film language suggested by Griffith and Eisenstein, the world cinema has not discovered anything revolutionary new until The Color of Pomegranates, not counting the generally unaccepted language of the Andalusian Dog by Buñuel”.

   Asinus tries to be unlike other artist, but she/he learns from artist like Hans Richter, trying different things in art.
