Manifesto that supported an arts event that took place in Dartington (UK) in 2008. The project followed a utopian and idealist train of thought and had the intention of creating a platform for critically examining the relationship between the artist/artwork and the audience/general public. This perspective assumes that the general public are the target audience of fine artworks (however a contrived perspective).

The following text is in its totality a manifesto for the consequentexhibition.A particular dissident/angst/reactionary stance was adopted and propounded and this isevident in the text as much as it is a integral feature of the final work.

Art’s place in a future society and the suicide of the artist
The Art exhibition we propose to organize, aims to destroy an old, irrelevant (and manytimes contested) Art status within its context of creation, showing, dissemination, selling,influence, and feed back: to society.Our intention is to perform and articulate through the exhibition medium the followingpoints:
Cohesion between Art and Popular Culture that is not commercially driven.
A renovation of the traditional gallery space that results in a more publiclyaccessible arena.
The position of Artist and Art itself in a contemporary society as a malleable anddestructible entity.
Art conditions and the condition of the artist. 5. The destruction of generalised Artculture, the image of artist and the prefabrication of high culture attributed bysociety, as attained through criticism and the act of simulation.
The values of the original, ownership, inhibition, preconception, public awareness,and public opinion through the use of physical engagement with Art.
The value of the original, the value of the reproduction, the value of expression, andthe potential of simulation, as both a system and a relevant social theory, throughthe use of cyberspace.
The relevance of all Art, past, present, future.
