THE BATTLE FOR MODeRN 1923

Attitudes of both contempt and reverence, and the strident manner in which such attitudes were expressed, were to become standard features in the many AVANT-GARDE MANIFESTOS that appeared ... Patrick Cramsie, from The Story of Graphic Design, page 175.

A numbered list can start a personal revolution. Kirsten Butler, from Five Manifestos for the Creative Life, Brain Pickings

The
Flomm
Visual
Manifesto
MANIFESTOS parallel human history – the dreams, fears, social and political struggles that make us who we are.
The Bauhaus Manifesto was utopian and vague.
Futurism, noisy.
DeStijl, boxy.
And FLOMM, we believe that villains – the bureaucratic ThWINGh
and ThEY should be stopped – and that any one person can change the world.
If you agree, add your name to our Manifesto ~

It is very tempting to pidgeonhole artists, according to the movement they were most associated with. But this ignores the fact that each artist is an individual, and every work of art unique. MONICA BOHM-DUCHEN AND JANET COOK, UNDERSTANDING MODERN ART, PAGE 4
