These angry, youthful, and powerful texts are brought to life in a tour-de-force of acting by Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett, who creates a kaleidoscopic series of different characterizations ranging from a TV anchorwoman to a corporate CEO to a homeless man. Presented simultaneously on massive screens, the 13 scenes draw on more than 50 manifestos by artists, architects, choreographers, and filmmakers at early points in their career, woven together into dramatic soliloquies that highlight specific movements or schools of thought. Connecting these famous texts to the humanity of everyday characters and actions, this highly theatrical cinematic installation makes its highly-anticipated North American premiere in an immersive reimagining that takes full advantage of the soaring Wade Thompson Drill Hall to allow viewers to experience both the intimacy of individual scenes and the cacophony of the work as a whole like never before. The resulting polyphonic plea for aesthetic change boldly recaptures the defiant spirit of its source material for a contemporary audience.
The man accused of the mass shooting in El Paso is reported to have written what he referred to as a \"meh manifesto.\" We have been referring to it as a \"manifesto.\" This note is just a reminder that as we report about such statements we should continue to carefully consider how we use the word in order to be as precise as possible, but not diminish its meaning with overuse. Many thanks to those who contributed to the discussion about this.
One argument for using it is that those who have written such statements claim to be part of a movement. They adopt language used by white supremacists to explain their actions. They quote others' writings. We want the audience to understand that context and the dangers of such statements. The word \"manifesto\" can help do those things.But, as we've said before, it's a word that can leave people thinking that such a statement is \"something more than it might really have been.\" The murderers responsible for mass shootings appear to have wanted the world to think their messages are coherent political statements. But is it always clear whether it's a manifesto, a killer's rant, both, or something else Ask those questions.
This manifesto is written by children who took part in consultations in 2021 with Save the Children to discuss a key issue to them; safe education. The 300 children in 10 countries, in turn, represent millions of children caught in conflict and the threat of violence and harassment, being denied their basic right to education.
Calls for police to release the \"manifesto\" that authorities say was written ahead of Monday's Nashville school shooting has prompted concern among LGBTQ+ groups, who caution against the publication of such a document.
Speaking at a press conference hours after the shooting, Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake, who said the shooter identified as transgender, confirmed that officials were in possession of a \"manifesto,\" a map detailing how the incident would take place and writings \"that pertain to this date, the actual incident.\"
Charles Moran, the national president of Log Cabin Republicans, a GOP organization that advocates for equal rights for LGBTQ+ Americans, also told Newsweek that there are \"serious consequences\" for the public release of the manifesto.
Laura McGinnis, a spokesperson for PFLAG, agreed, telling Newsweek that publication of these documents could increase the risk of contagion. She said that while the manifesto could help law enforcement and policymakers identify potential warning signs to prevent future tragedies, ultimately, \"the contents don't change the outcome of the tragedy.\"
On Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department told the Daily Caller News Foundation that it had no intention of releasing the documents anytime soon, saying, \"We will not be releasing the manifesto during an open investigation.\"
Nashville police revealed that the 28-year-old who shot and killed six people at the Covenant School, including three children, identified as transgender and had a detailed manifesto to attack the Christian academy.
Pie in the sky, nonsense! This is futurism (Redux),. I suggest this collective of writers, read their Marx, actually read Marx. You cannot change technology for more open future, without first and foremost recapturing the means of production. This manifesto reads like a neoliberal clothed in Marxist garb, attempting to be cutting edge, without ever putting forward a practical plan.Moreover, this manifesto offers very little of an effective critique of post-industrial post-modern capitalism, and nothing as to tactics of over coming this PoMo capitalism! We need to do this, we need to do that, yells your manifesto! Well, how do we go about this on the ground! Even the Situationists had a bag of tricks, Detournement, the creation of situations, Derrive, an excellent critique of the capitalist spectacle etc. Accelerate! Accelerate! Accelerate your technology! is simply an empty call to arms. If you want a effective post-industrial, post-modern critique of capitalism read The Structural-Anarchism Manifesto at: 59ce067264
