Co-designed poster, Paul Bailey and Benedikt Weishaupt
This poster removes information supplanting Marshal McLuhan's dictum, 'That moment when [information] rubs up against [information]'. This poster functions as the reverb to the echoing manifesto's, offering a nod to the perceived shift in priorities from 1964 (design practice) and 2000 (Design practise).
Design Displacement Group for Manifest Fest, Warsaw, Poland celebrating 50 years of the First Things First Manifesto.
|Additional Information (Publicly available):||
Warsaw, 2014 – 50 years after the publication of Ken Garland’s “First Things First” manifesto. The most outstanding designers and critics from Europe and the United States will meet in the Stanisław Witkiewicz Studio Theatre to discuss postulates presented in 1964 and in 2000. They will carefully reflect on how to benefit from design in a contemporary world and how to make it more effective in social and political aspects. Ken Garland will be a guest of honour of MANIFEST FEST.
MANIFEST FEST intends to rethink the idea of socially responsible design from a completely new perspective. MANIFEST FEST is a two-day meeting, a series of seminars and panel discussions aiming to debate and eventually develop further projects’ scenarios accompanied by a dedicated set of projects that will be installed in the Studio Theatre’s space and in its vicinity.
The premiere of the Raiders of the Lost Things by Grzegorz Laszuk and Komuna//Warszawa (Warszawa Commune) also will take place during Manifest Fest.
The performance will reveal what happens to the „First Things First” manifesto in the distant future.
