The Cheap Art Manifesto

Last week I had the pleasure to attend an excellent exhibition at the Victoria&Albert museum: Disobedient Objects, examining the powerful role of objects in movements for social change. Political activism drives a wealth of design ingenuity and collective creativity that defy standard definitions of art and design.

It was in this exhibition where I found the Cheap Art Manifesto:

It was issued by the Bread and Puppet Theater “in direct response to the business of art and its growing appropriation by the corporate sector.” Although it was written by a puppeteers company, it can be applied to any form of art. Molleindustria was mentioned in this exhibition so videogames can definitely be developed following this manifesto.
