Just checked out NAD. We live and learn: "Each article in an encyclopedia is about a person, a people, a concept, a place, an event, a thing etc." Anti-anti-art" is presumably a concept, and, if it isn't, then you had better delete the article on "anti-art" as one of your NADs as well. Perhaps some rudimentary research would help. Google is a good place to start and has 134,000 results. They can't all be crufty (?) fans, surely:

Here's some that might help (or are they crufts in disguise?):

Anti-anti-art is a stance proposed by the Stuckists[1] in their manifestos[2] outlining their art. In it, they take a particularly strong position in opposition to what is known as "anti-art".[3]

Stuckists claim that conceptual art is justified by the work of Marcel Duchamp, but that Duchamp's work is "anti-art by intent and effect". The Stuckists feel that "Duchamp's work was a protest against the stale, unthinking artistic establishment of his day", while "the great (but wholly unintentional) irony of postmodernism is that it is a direct equivalent of the conformist, unoriginal establishment that Duchamp attacked in the first place".[4]
