ART NOUVEAU Sample Pack

Post by 180lb6'3 »

Hi everyone, I'm attaching a "Sample Pack" (read twice in the Discord recently) for ART NOUVEAU, an upcoming visual arts tournament by me and Will Alston. I'll formally announce ART NOUVEAU once it's 50% written, hopefully in early July. This pack is a good example of what to expect from ART NOUVEAU, except that it does not include film (which will be 3/0 in the final version of the tournament). Please contact me/post in this thread with questions or (especially) feedback on the pack.

Will ART NOUVEAU contain packets or will it just consist of the "pack" s?

Is this like, a philosophical question? The tournament will stand in the same relation to its packets as other tournaments do...

Packets are the packets of packets.

Oh, I see... I use these interchangeably. Relatedly, the tournament will employ Canadian spelling (on my tossups, at least), but will not have a "Canadian content" allotment in the distribution.

Cool, very excited for this tournament. Answers seem a bit on the hard side, but I'd be on board for it.

So this tournament never materialized, but I've posted two packets (21 tossups each, super/power marked), compiled from the writing I did before I gave up on the project, here: https://hsquizbowl.org/db/questionsets/2489/

"1" is the sample pack (above in this thread) with minor edits and one tossup replaced. "2" has tossups I haven't posted before, but which I read on the Discord a few months ago; they've been edited slightly since then. Neither pack has any film, and "2" has no architecture, for personal reasons. In both packets, I aimed for Open difficulty, novelty, and heavier weight on "art adjacent" content (criticism, art history scholarship, aesthetic philosophy, "artworld", etc.) than standard.

I hope you will play/read/enjoy these!
