100 Artists' Manifestos

Alex Danchev

Publisher:Penguin Books Ltd

In this one-of-a-kind volume, indispensable for students of art, architecture and film, Alex Danchev presents “100 Artists' Manifestos”, each reproduced with an introduction on the author and the associated movement, in “Penguin Modern Classics”. This remarkable collection of 100 manifestos from the last 100 years is cacophony of voices from such diverse movements as Futurism, Dadaism, Surrealism, Feminism, Communism, Destructivism, Vorticism, Stridentism, Cannibalism and Stuckism, taking in along the way film, architecture, fashion, and cookery. Artists' manifestos are nothing if not revolutionary. They are outlandish, outrageous, and frequently offensive. They combine wit, wisdom, and world-shaking demands. This collection gathers together an international array of artists of every stripe, including Kandinsky, Mayakovsky, Rodchenko, Le Corbusier, Picabia, Dali, Oldenburg, Vertov, Baselitz, Kitaj, Murakami, Gilbert and George, together with their allies and collaborators - such figures as Marinetti, Apollinaire, Breton, Trotsky, Guy Debord and Rem Koolhaas.Editor Alex Danchev is the author of an acclaimed biography of artist Georges Braque and is Professor of International Relations at the University of Nottingham. His other works include “Alanbrooke War Diaries: Field Marshall Lord Alanbrooke”, “The Iraq War and Democratic Politics” and “On Art and War and Terror”. If you enjoyed “100 Artists' Manifestos”, you might like John Berger's “Ways of Seeing”, also available in “Penguin Modern Classics”. “The Manifesto is remarkable for its imaginative power...it is the first great modernist work of art.” (“Marshall Berman”).
