Jordan, Mel, Beech, Dave and Hewitt, Andy, 2014, Conference or Workshop, To Hell with Herbert Read at To Hell with Culture? Re-examining the commodification of culture in contemporary capitalism, Manchester, UK, 30 October 2014.
|Abstract or Description:||
Freee write manifestos by taking a pencil (or a laptop) to an historical text, usually belonging to the entwined traditions of the avant-garde and political activism. Sometimes, as Tristan Tzara advised, we choose the text according to its length, while other times, such as in this instance, we selected the text according to the conditions of the invitation that triggered the writing of the manifesto. Our manifesto ‘To Hell with Herbert Read’ was written originally as a contribution to a conference held in Manchester that took its title from Herbert Read’s book ‘To Hell with Culture’.
