Objectives and Content

What do you say, what do you mean, why do you say it and

for what and to whom? Why? To read and write a manifesto!

In 1855 Gustave Courbet wrote the Realist manifest, in 1886 the Symbolist Manifesto

was written by poet and essayist Jean Moréas. The first art manifesto was written by

the futurist Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. The first feminist by Mina Loy, and recently

by Chimamnda Ngozi Adichie. The manifesto of Lust by Valerie de Saint Point. Artist

manifestos by Marina Abramovic and Kendal Geers, The queer nation manifesto etc.

During the course we read manifestos to understand their nature and intentions.

You will write a group and an individual manifesto!

The Manifesto course can be combined with MaskReplica course in week 7 and the

Manifestos and Masques course in week 11.

A manifesto is a public declaration of principles, policies, or intentions, especially of a

political nature. (Dictionary definition).
