"Racing around a fireball is a blob of filth on which ladies stockings are sold and Gauguins prized, truly a most deplorable business..." Walter Serner, 1918.
PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS has been conceived as a collection of contemporary artists manifestos. Celebrating the stupidity of declaring your intentions to the world with the hope of changing it, PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS will be a tragi-comedy of baroque minimalist clownery, grandiose and ill conceived in extreme.
Like an over stuffed letterbox at election time, PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS embraces all the half-baked ideas, dead ends and prejudiced rants that make artists’ manifestos wondrous works in themselves. Accepting the paucity of the written word, images made in the spirit of the manifesto will also be included in this landfill of a publication.
