Lars Von Trier's Dogme95 Manifesto
http://www.dogme95.dk/menu/menuset.htm
'The auteur concept was bourgeois romanticism from the very start and thereby ... false!
To DOGME 95 cinema is not individual!'

Andre Breton's Surrealist Manifesto
http://www.tcf.ua.edu/courses/Jbutler/T ... ealism.htm
'At this juncture, my intention was merely to mark a point by noting the
hate of the marvelous which rages in certain men, this absurdity beneath which they try to bury it. Let us not mince words: the marvelous is always beautiful, anything marvelous is beautiful, in fact only the marvelous is beautiful.

The Association of Autonomous Astronauts AAA
had any number of manifestos

4) The terrorization of gravity
Gravity is the police force of Gaia's autocracy & should just like every other institution of repressing power be antagonised, bullied, taunted, provoked, wounded & killed just like any other institution. It is essential that the G-forces be weakened, before the AAA space programme commences

the autonomous/anonymous element leads into
The Luther Blisset Manifesto
(we really should write a Jim Davis manifesto.)
'Luther Blissett is not a 'teamwork identity' as reported by the journalists; rather, it is a MULTIPLE SINGLE: the 'Luther Blissetts' don't exist, only Luther Blissett exist. Today we can infuse ourselves with vitality by exploring any possibility of escaping the conventional identities.'

The Decadent Action Manifesto
http://www.monoculartimes.co.uk/counter ... tion.shtml
(one for Bill)
7. Pass on the decadent message at all possible opportunities. We recommend writing, rubber stamping or scalding on bank notes with appropriate pro- consumer slogans such as 'spend, spend, spend' and 'shop now, riot later'.

The Neoist Alliance
ltaken argely the work of Stewart Home's vast, amorphous writings/rantings.
His readings are semi-legendary, reading being somewhat of a misonomer usually as he recites from memory
19-20th MAY 2007
University of Stirling, Central Region, Scotland FK9 4LA.
Stewart Home is a plenary speaker at the "Retelling Tales" conference organised by the Department of English Studies. Home will deliver a paper on: "Losing The Plot: Twice told tales and post-modern rumours of narrative exhaustion". For full programme, exact times and other information: tel 07890775759; or email retellingtales@stir.ac.uk

Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front
Wendell Berry

Love the quick profit, the annual raise,
vacation with pay. Want more
of everything ready-made. Be afraid
to know your neighbors and to die.

And you will have a window in your head.
Not even your future will be a mystery
any more. Your mind will be punched in a card
and shut away in a little drawer.

When they want you to buy something
they will call you. When they want you
to die for profit they will let you know.
So, friends, every day do something
that won't compute. Love the Lord.
Love the world. Work for nothing.
Take all that you have and be poor.
Love someone who does not deserve it.

Denounce the government and embrace
the flag. Hope to live in that free
republic for which it stands.
Give your approval to all you cannot
understand. Praise ignorance, for what man
has not encountered he has not destroyed.

Ask the questions that have no answers.
Invest in the millenium. Plant sequoias.
Say that your main crop is the forest
that you did not plant,
that you will not live to harvest.

Say that the leaves are harvested
when they have rotted into the mold.
Call that profit. Prophesy such returns.
Put your faith in the two inches of humus
that will build under the trees
every thousand years.

Listen to carrion -- put your ear
close, and hear the faint chattering
of the songs that are to come.
Expect the end of the world. Laugh.
Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful
though you have considered all the facts.
So long as women do not go cheap
for power, please women more than men.

Ask yourself: Will this satisfy
a woman satisfied to bear a child?
Will this disturb the sleep
of a woman near to giving birth?

Go with your love to the fields.
Lie down in the shade. Rest your head
in her lap. Swear allegiance
to what is nighest your thoughts.

As soon as the generals and the politicos
can predict the motions of your mind,
lose it. Leave it as a sign
to mark the false trail, the way
you didn't go.

Be like the fox
who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
Practice resurrection.

Manifesto quiz - name that manifesto without resorting to google. I know when you use google. I can see you from here.



1. Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.

2. We want to demolish museums and libraries, fight morality, feminism and all opportunist and utilitarian cowardice.

3. The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles. Freeman and slave, patrician and plebeian, lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman, in a word, oppressor and oppressed, stood in constant opposition to one another, carried on an uninterrupted, now hidden, now open fight, a fight that each time ended, either in a revolutionary re-constitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes.

4. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

5. Every individual who, in the current state of affairs, drops a paper into the ballot box to choose a legislative authority or a executive authority is — perhaps not wittingly but at least out of ignorance, maybe not directly, but at least indirectly — a bad citizen. I repeat what I have been saying and take back not a single syllable of it.

6. Though we consider the religious forms and ideas of our fathers no longer adequate, the quest for the good life is still the central task for mankind. Man is at last becoming aware that he alone is responsible for the realization of the world of his dreams, that he has within himself the power for its achievement. He must set intelligence and will to the task.

7. Italians! Here is the program of a genuinely Italian movement. It is revolutionary because it is anti-dogmatic, strongly innovative and against prejudice.
For the political problem: We demand:
a) Universal suffrage polled on a regional basis, with proportional representation and voting and electoral office eligibility for women.

8. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals.
You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.
Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

9. Let us not mince words: the marvelous is always beautiful, anything marvelous is beautiful, in fact only the marvelous is beautiful.

10. No hymns will be sung.
No records will be played.
iPods will be left at home.
Rock bands will not rock.
Conductors will not take the podium.
Decks will not spin.
The needle will not drop.
The piano lid will not be lifted.

been re-looking at this project over at the ForPub meetings. Looks like the idea has legs and we are looking into the law etc in terms of copyright and how to put this all together. I imagine it could be great so yes, keep adding manifestos here!

Also - the quiz was amazing jane. could make a nice back of book or online quiz / newspaper quiz to hype the book.

anyway, really enjoying this thread. keep them coming.

The Cloud appreciation society's manifesto (Swithun and I got a membership for Xmas):

WE BELIEVE that clouds are unjustly maligned and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them.

We think that they are Nature’s poetry, and the most egalitarian of her displays, since
everyone can have a fantastic view of them.


We pledge to fight ‘blue-sky thinking’ wherever we find it.
Life would be dull if we had to look up at cloudless monotony day after day.


We seek to remind people that clouds are expressions of the atmosphere’s moods, and can be read like those of
a person’s countenance.


Clouds are so commonplace that their beauty is often overlooked.
They are for dreamers and their contemplation benefits the soul.
Indeed, all who consider the shapes they see in them will save on psychoanalysis bills.


And so we say to all who’ll listen:
Look up, marvel at the ephemeral beauty, and live life with your head in the clouds!
