Working against our tendency to fear failure, The International Errorist uses humor and theater to embrace the notion of error as a fundamental human condition.

The International Errorist

The International Errorist is a global movement of artist-activists who use dark humor, absurdity, and theater to organize symbolic street actions that claim “error” as a fundamental human condition in the capitalist world. The movement was founded in 2005 by the Buenos Aires-based collective Etcétera in protest of George W. Bush and the Summits of the Americas, and has subsequently expanded with members in Latin America, Mexico, Europe, Canada, the United States, and Japan. For the 11th Istanbul Biennial, Etcétera created Errorist Kabaret (2009), a surreal tableau in which viewers actively commingled with life-sized cutouts of iconic historical figures of the International Errorist movement.

Founded 2005 in Mar del Plata, Argentina.
Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
