Between 2010 and 2013 ArtReview magazine published twenty-six columns of Brown’s Dictionary, an A-Z of art and the art world. Brown’s approach was to engage with contemporary art according to its own specifications: to be somewhat deranged, certainly excessive, and – very occasionally – meaningful.

For example:

‘ART WORLD. A capitalistic value order system in which the transfer objects known as art are exchanged, so enabling those engaged in the exchange — principally bankers and dealers, served by artists — to acquire forms of social merit. If bankers succeed in gaining sufficient merit from dealers, they may then be permitted to deposit their sperm inside the artists, either vaginally or within the walls of the rectum.’
