Here is a selection of artists’ manifestos written by artists, musicians or theorists,
dating back to 1914.
The texts present how each writer or art collective sees the
role of art in culture, the role of artists in modern society, as well as how new
technologies relate to art making. They take positions on art forms, artistic
themes, and cultural practices from individual works to museums & misogyny.
Note: We will be looking more deeply at a few these in class, but they are the
basis of Exercise #1: Manifesto, textual analysis. (See Module 1) Also, I need to find a good version of Feeble love, so I have removed it.(Tzara)
