manifestroom

manifestroom takes the word manifest and transforms it into a live, spacial interaction. The installation offers political, separatist and artistic manifestos from the last century. Play, listen and touch these texts. Typewriters in the center of the room invite you to contribute to a new declaration that asks: what now of our activist ancestries?
