Intentists include professors of philosophy, literary critics, writers, artists, musicians and actors. Read the Intentist manifesto here:
In sum, the three Intentist principles are:
1. The artist is free to convey his or her intended message. Intentists believe that European (Continental) postmodernism has effectively gagged the artist.
2. A confused, hidden or denied intention leads to ZERO accountability.
3. An omission of artist intention can lead to enforced restrictions on the artist and even censorship.
