DISTURBÀTI DISTÙRBATI!

Are manifestoes still valuable devices for avanguardist wannabe?

 

“To put out a manifesto you must want: ABC to fulminate against 1, 2, 3”. In 1918 Tristan Zara started its famous Dada Manifesto explaining how irrelevant manifesto were by describing the writing of them as a simple series of rules to be followed.  After almost 90 years the irrelevancy of manifestoes is testified by the fact that they became simple communication devices that do not imply the need for self-transformation nor social change. 

They are nothing more than a weakened literary genre with rules and codes without any spirit. 

 

Are Mocking prospectives capable of generating reactions?

Can cynical faulty visions boost creativity not as it is ought to be?

 

Clients are invited to follow a defined path, that passing through different departments culminates in the production of their own manifestoes by the apparatus. This path will enable them to free themselves from a passive visitor behavior and will eventually transform them into energized individuals capable of performing in front of a camera.

By entering the corporation office, clients delegate the apparatus to think for them: they are free from thinking, but not free from the apparatus.
