Cack-U-Like was started in 2000 by artist Jon Purnell. Sickened by the commodification inherent in the London art scene, Cack-U-Like began by a performance called Demonstration Against Toffs in Art. This was held outside Londons White Cube and involved the waving of placards with the slogans Toffs out of Art and No to Toffs in Art. In late 2002 the group sidestepped their anti-bourgeois stance and focused instead on critiques of the stale or static quality of many art institutions. The first of these was entitled Haunted Tate and involved seven ghosts haunting the Tate Modern. Cack-U-Like has attempted to forge links with other video artists by creating the Max5 Video festival shown annually at Londons Café Gallery Projects. Currently formed of seven artists, the group has a fluid approach to membership, with new members joining on a regular basis.
