'Madness of Many' is a creative research synopsis on the 'This is Not Art' festival that takes place in Newcastle, NSW. Critical Animals has over the past decade brought together students, researchers, writers, artists, academics and thinkers who critically engage with creative practices. Its participants have dispersed, reunited, re-dispersed and revisited conversations and ideas that began in the cosy enclaves of the festival.
In an ode to the practices that were presented at the festival the approach for this edition was to construct the same vein in which the artists delivered during the festival. Using the the tonal colours of the festival throughout the edition.
