The Institute of Social Hypocrisy, 2009 – 2011, was a performance artwork by Victor Boullet that served to front a collaborative art program by providing a fictitious level of authority behind which the artist’s activities could reign free. This book serves as the ongoing physical remains of this involved project and is the opportunity to experience the totality of the events included. 

This weighty publication is not only the complete summary of the events, installations, exhibitions and publications that comprised The Institute of Social Hypocrisy, but also an abundance of additional information provides a glimpse behind the scenes.

Emails and correspondence between participants and a comprehensive photographic documentary open a window onto the engagement of the diverse contributors and the processes involved in its creation.
