This Manifesto was published February the 9th 2009 on The St Ives Times and Echo and has been completely ignored and dismissed by the St.Ives' Art scene.
Anyway, I am not expecting anyone to understand it before the end of this century. :-)
THE FUTURIST NEW MANIFESTO 2009 by Dhyano Luca Angius - Metabolic Thinker and Multi-sensory Poet of the Third Millennium
A hundred years ago Le Figaro published The Futurist Manifesto created by Tommaso Marinetti bringing to the world a huge creative energy that is still growing and multiplying for the benefit of the people and of their creative power of transformation.
Even though Futurism might be considered the mother of modern art, it now belongs to the past and today, here and now we want to take the freedom to give voice to a new movement for the emancipation of the global creative thinking that detaches itself from the past with the same sublime and devastating energy of the Futurism.
We want to strip the futurist ideas off all fascist ideologies and polluted extremisms of its time and reinvigorate the immense power of transformation that still represents.
The Futurism of the 20th century managed to free the artist from conceptual, economic/moralistic impositions of the dominant ‘passist’ culture of that time.
Now the artist is free to express the creative potential of virtually infinite concepts with virtually infinite media, but is still oppressed an repressed by a dominant minority that creates its own rules in a market that represent only a very selected elite.
The Futurism of the third millennium will demolish this aberrant social behaviour generating at the same time a new system of distribution of the work of art for the benefit of the most, including and especially the vast audience excluded by the defective and ineffective intellectualism that permeate the world of art.
Therefore we declare here and now the dawn of a new era. We declare open to the global discussion on what we call The New Manifesto 2009.
1) The ultimate end of a work of art is to create a new sensory experience in the one who perceive it.
2) We are for a self-sustainable creative society where the audience is at the centre of our intentions and we divulge our ideas free from social, economic and political impositions dictated by an obsolete market based on the recognition and valorisation of few egos for the damage of the majority of egoless communities.
3) The WoA belongs in the same way to the community that stimulate it and to the individual that produce it.
4) We declare the Artist as an independent Organism free to express her/his concepts and as such a cell of the economic organism alive and vibrant, able to generate quality and increase value of the community that sustain him/her.
5) The art for the sake of art is crumbling together with the actual economic system and leave space to a new way of exchange of riches for the benefit of all section of the community rather then only few wealthy individuals.
6) We announce the down of a system allowing the individual tu use and own works of art independently from its own financial power and based on desire of improving its quality of life.
7) We instigate the discussion towards the implementation of a new distribution of the riches generated by work of art eventually leading to the dissolution of the current Art Councils that dissipate available capital into a highly expensive bureaucratic organism.
8) We urge the action towards the creation of new laws designed to keep separated the VAT generated by the Arts because we want to have immediate access to that capital in order to develop new creative energies and bring the work of art unto a level accessible directly to the creative communities and not filtered by static artistic policies.
9) We will introduce new sponsorships systems in a way that we'll distribute less money to large organisations and more money to individuals and small groups. We will create a wave of cash spinning around the world where anyone can tap in directly to finance artistic projects bypassing the mediation of over politicised, over expensive public organisations.
10) We are against the Private Art Galleries as elements that slow down the circulation of Works of Art for the sake of profit, damaging and pauperizing the creative potential of the market.
