I am for an Art (Writing)

WithSusannah Thompson

‘I am for an art (writing)’ takes the form of a historical art manifesto. It represents a playful attempt to enact the idea that critical and creative writing can be intertwined and reconsiders the manifesto form in a contemporary context. Using sections of appropriated and found text, bad puns, jokes and word play, it is a deliberately playful and provocative series of propositions around what art writing should or can be in the twenty-first century.
