Forking the Manifesto

During the BR reading group, we will read three texts as an impetus for unpacking several claims mapped out in our manifesto (available online http://laboriacuboniks.net/). We produced the manifesto as a starting point, to sketch out a site for both cognitive and pragmatic navigation, always with the view that it could be a tool for anyone, not localised to members of the immediate group. With two artist-members of the group present - we hope to engage in a workshop/discussion session with other participants, focusing more specifically on the following vectors and potential ramifications of further work on the following topics: Urbanism; Abstraction; and Transmodernism.
