CORE 002 SC - Poetry of the Revolution: The Manifesto


As consumers of the artifacts of modern culture -- paintings, architecture, movies, literature -- we tend to be unaware that most artistic and political movements originated in one very specific idea. Embodying the quintessentially modern claim to nothing less than the capacity to change the world, the manifesto has captured the urgency of this idea for almost 200 years now. Beginning with the modern era's archetypical manifesteers, Marx and Engels, this class explores proclamations by African-American abolitionists, Italian Futurists, and Riot Grrrl punkrockers. We will discuss declarations by women's suffrage activists, Bauhaus architects, French filmmakers, and many other manifestos.
