A public written declaration of principles, policies, and objectives.
Artistic manifestos can be a call to arms, a statement of principles, or a line drawn in the sand. They can be a provocation and a challenge to existing tastes and aesthetics, an analysis of landmark productions, a spotlight on seminal points in time, or simply a confirmation of emerging trends, values and practices.
“If there is no resistance there is no chance”
Julie Andree T. delivers a Manifesto which is a collage of Manifestos. It’s homage to other artists/movements over that past 40 years that have had the courage to take a position over the history of art.
