III. Manifesto. Art Today, Facing Doubts is the third chapter in The Text: First Notions and Findings, a programme of exhibitions and activities analysing possible forms of writing in contemporary art. If in the first chapter (I. Chronicle. Narrative, History and Subjectivity) we looked at the subjective observation of reality in the form of chronicles, and in the second (II. Escapes. Fiction as Rigor) we escaped through fiction, in the third and final chapter we explore artists’ direct commitment to the present and the ideological force of the manifesto—a format with political and social roots understood as a form of writing, a blank sheet, a place for defining an explosion in thought and action as we face our environment.

After a whole season exploring the ties between art and writing, The Text: First Notions and Findings will close in mid-July with a final look at this relationship: The Book Lovers, an archive project curated by David Maroto and Joanna Zielinska containing over 200 novels written by artists.

III. Manifesto. Art Today, Facing Doubts
Opening: Friday 30 May, 8pm
Before Beginning, 6pm
A conversation with Chris Kraus
