MANIFESTO captures the vibrancy and immediacy of manifesti, from Futurism in 1909 to 1960s Fluxus via Lettrism.

Vocalist Loré Lixenberg, laptop artist Federico Reuben and Aleks Kolkowski on wax cylinders and horns bring the texts alive musically, highlighting their ground-breaking and sometimes shocking nature. A pop-up exhibition of rarely seen and exciting artefacts including manifesto tracts, original scores, sound poems and photographs as well as rare early records, by the manifesto authors, features alongside the performance.

New Yorkers show their (astonishment) disapproval: themes: polemic: expression (of astonishment) of disapproval (creative) creative (living sculpture)

March 1, 2014

India ink on Canson paper
32 x 24 cm
New York, February 23, 2014
New Yorkers organized a protest march in the streets of SoHo. The demonstrators came from every borough to express their astonishment, indeed for the most engaged their disapproval, of the title and content of the show Art by Delegation organized in Brussels.

 John Smith, a member of the American branch of the Committee for Creative Vigilance: I don't understand why the show is called Art by Delegation. Since it is supertemporal art with the participation of the viewers, based on an idea of Isidore Isou, the creator of Letterism, the show could have simply been called Concerning the Supertemporal.”

 Ann Pandergast is among the most determined demonstrators: We call on all art lovers to write their creative slogans on the supertemporal banner.”

 James Trawisky participated in the demonstration, but expresses reservations about the radicalness of some of the entries: After all, this show can be considered an advance that takes into account the realities of public awareness and the state of the market. If it is a further step toward the propagation and recognition of this avant-garde movement, then why not?

Le livres des vivants 1969

January 7, 2014

Date : Fri, Oct 4, 2013
From : gpbroutin@xxxxx
To : Louis.berreur@xxxxxx
Subject : The Book of the Living
Dear Edouard Berreur,
I am currently working on new editions of some of my previous works. I am writing to you about The Book of the Living, a small booklet that you were supposed to publish in 1970, for which I had given you the original drawings for the deluxe edition.
Through the friendly intermediary of Frederic Acquaviva, last year I was able to lay my hands on an ordinary copy of it; this is the first time I had seen it. The facts are disappointing: the present edition was only printed with a few copies, and was never distributed. The deluxe editions were never done. After all this time, I am not looking to start a confrontation with you – as I should have done earlier – but rather to find a positive solution which will finally permit me to give this work its place in my bibliography.
I am inclined to help you arrive at an outcome that satisfies both of us. Let me know what you would suggest on your part.
Your friend, Broutin
