Publisher Description

'Art is not a luxury. Art is a basic social need to which everyone has a right'.

This extraordinary collection of 100 artists' manifestos from across the globe over the last 100 years brings together activists, post-colonialists, surrealists, socialists, nihilists and a host of other voices. From the Negritude movement in Martinique to Poland's Animal Manifesto, from Iraqi modernism to Australia's Bitch Mutant Manifesto, they are by turns personal, political, utopian, angry, sublime and revolutionary. Some have not been published in English before; some were written in climates of censorship and brutality; some contain visions of a future still on the horizon. What unites them is the belief that art can change the world.
