TRAVELLING IDEAS: “An Incomplete Manifesto”
A collective project open to an unlimited number of contributors between NOW and the EVENT. An invitation to collective thinking-making
We let an incomplete manifesto made up of pre-exisiting manifestos/statements - travel to a number of people. It suggested a number of potential artistic intentions/premises. Each person was asked to respond in the moment.
1. Per-form the idea. Attach yourself to what you feel to be true: begin there. The response could take any form.
2. Manifesto: re-edit send us your edit of the manifesto: you may adjust or violate as necessary.
An operation of manifestations between discourse and practice
We received 38 responses and 38 re-edits of the manifesto
This first travel of the manifesto was re-presented in a durational action/installation at the launch of Performance Matters
This is just the beginning and the ideas will continue to travel…watch this space: http://thisislivefromhome.org/
