"(arts|slang) A genre of art; referring to any piece which is fueled, at its core, by a moebius of self-referential meta." What's a moebius? What is meta (noun)? What does this mean? Can someone define it in English? Equinox 21:30, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Sigh, it's a transwiki. Quite easy to spot a transwiki because they're very often unattestable, sum of parts or incomprehensible. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:39, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I am seeing what looks like three good hits on books.google.com, but I can't work out the meaning from them. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:56, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I added a sense reflecting the predominate usage: exploitative art films. I haven't seen anything to support the original sense, which I take to mean art which is preoccupied with itself or the artist's self ("moebius" seems to refer to the Möbius strip, a shape that twists back on itself in an infinite loop). I think we should rfv the first sense, which may very well be a protologism (in that sense only). Chuck Entz (talk) 19:50, 16 March 2012 (UTC)
