Dutch artists and non-academic free-style researchers Rob Hamelijnck and Nienke Terpsma are best known as editors of Fucking Good Art, a periodic that started as a publication for 'positive art critique' in a do-it-yourself style. It was founded in 2003, and is published both on paper and online, and some issues on paper or online. After the first issues the focus shifted more and more to what happens around the work and the exhibition itself, on the context and cultural politics behind the art world, always navigating between the very specific, individual, anecdotal, and an effort to gain, share and join in the construction of some general understanding. Fucking Good Art has proved to be a good tool to report on this art research. FGA is a collaborate effort; each edition is compiled by a different team, an organically growing (and shrinking) network of artists,writers and curators who have different reasons for writing about art, for sharing knowledge and observations, and for voicing institutional criticisms. In the past FGA settled for shorter or longer periods in, among other places, Münich, Berlin, Dresden, Riga, Kopenhagen, Zürich and Sao Paulo to make editions of FGA on the basis of the local context, and always in a new collective of makers & thinkers. In this ongoing participating investigation of artistic communities Fucking Good Art editions appeared in book format as well as humble A3 pamphlets, and also sometimes posters, web radio, photo works and video.

In July 22–25, 2010 Rob Hamelijnck and Nienke Terpsma participated in a project by Joanna Warsza in collaboration with GeoAIR Frozen Moments: Architecture Speaks Back

As part of the project the video Sharing a View by Fucking Good Art was screened on the facade of Bank of Georgia, Pekini Avenue 14, Tbilisi, and offered some views from the windows of The Former Ministry of Highways of Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic to a bigger audience.
