Democratic Art Manifesto project
Date: 18 Jan 2005 - From: mkk

"In post-modernistic times a manifesto hardly seems to get any attention or have any impact. Due to that it will be outnumbered in the huge swarm of opinions and statements, which overflow the art-debate. Democratic Art Manifesto project attempts to see how contemporary art will take on the chance to form a manifesto in a democratic way.

The first step is collecting "statements" about art, via a website statements can be deliverd for the democratic art-manifesto The statements can be submitted untill the 1st of May, and must be related to art. After May the first, people can vote for the statements wich they think must be added to the manifesto."

So please add, and later vote via:
