Infrarealist Manifesto.

WHAT DO WE PROPOSE?

TO NOT MAKE WRITING A PROFESSION TO SHOW THAT EVERYTHING IS ART AND THAT EVERYBODY CAN DO IT TO DEAL WITH "INSIGNIFICANT THINGS"/ WITHOUT INSTITUTIONAL VALUE/ TO PLAY/ ART SHOULD BE UNLIMITED IN QUANTITY, ACCESSIBLE TO ALL, AND, IF POSSIBLE, MADE BY ALL

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

REFUTE ART/ REFUTE DAILY LIFE (DUCHAMP) AT A TIME THAT SEEMS NEARLY ENTIRELY BLOCKED OFF FOR PROFESSIONAL OPTIMISTS TRANSFORM ART/ TRANSFORM DAILY LIFE (US) CREATIVITY/ LIFE MISALIGNED AT ALL COSTS (TO SHAKE THE HIPS OF THE PRESENT WITH EYELASHES BATTING FROM THE AIRPORTS OF THE FUTURE) AT A TIME WHEN MURDERS HAVE BEEN DISGUISED AS SUICIDES

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

TO CONVERT LECTURE HALLS INTO SHOOTING RANGES (WOULD DEBRAY SAY/ THE CARNAVAL IN THE CARNAVAL?)

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

BEETHOVEN, RACINE & MICHAELANGELO STOPPED BEING THE MOST USEFUL THE MOST AMPHETAMENIC, THE MOST NOURISHING: SOUND BARRIERS THE LABYRINTHS OF SPEED (OH JAMES DEAN!) ARE BREAKING APART ELSEWHERE

""""""""""""""""""""

TO GET PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR DEPENDENCY AND PASSIVITY TO SEEK UNPRECEDENTED MEANS OF INTERVENTION & OF DECISION IN THE WORLD TO DEMYSTIFY/ TO BECOME AGITATORS NOTHING HUMAN IS ALIEN TO US (GOOD) NOTHING UTOPIAN IS ALIEN TO US (REALLY GOOD)

=====================

AT THIS TIME MORE THAN BEFORE THE ARTISTIC PROBLEM CANNOT BE CONSIDERED AS AN INTERNAL STRUGGLE OF TENDENCIES/ BUT RATHER AS ABOVE ALL A TACIT STRUGGLE (ALMOST DECLARED) BETWEEN THOSE WHO WHETHER THEY KNOW IT OR NOT ARE WITH THE SYSTEM OR AIM TO CONSERVE IT AND PROLONG IT/ AND THOSE WHO IN A CONSCIOUS FASHION OR NOT WISH TO MAKE IT EXPLODE

********************

ART IN THIS COUNTRY HAS NOT ADVANCED PAST A LITTLE TECHNICAL COURSE FOR EXERCISING MEDIOCRITY DECORATIVELY

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

"ONLY THOSE MEN FREE OF ALL BONDS MAY CARRY FLAME SUFFICIENTLY FAR" ANDRE BRETON

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TO RETURN TO ART THE NOTION OF A PASSIONATE & CONVULSIVE LIFE CULTURE IS NOT IN BOOKS NOR IN PAINTINGS OR STATUES IT IS IN THE NERVES/ IN THE FLUIDITY OF THE NERVES/ CLEARER PROPOSITION: A CULTURE MADE FLESH/ A CULTURE IN FLESH, IN SENSITIVITY (THIS OLD DREAM OF ANTONIN ARTAUD)

5555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555555

ALL THAT EXISTS: THE FIELD OF OUR ACTIVITY / AND THE FRANTIC SEARCH FOR WHAT DOES NOT YET EXIST

*************************

OUR FINALITY IS (THE TRUTH) PRACTICAL SUBVERSION

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

EXAMPLE OF TOTAL ART TOTAL SCULPTURE (AND WITH MOVEMENT): A RALLY OF 10,000 TO 20,000 PEOPLE SUPPORTING THE STRIKE OF THE DEMOCRATIC TENDENCY OF THE ELECTRICAL WORKERS' UNION TOTAL MUSIC: A TRIP ON MUSHROOMS THROUGH THE MAZATECA SIERRA TOTAL PAINTING: CLAUDIA KERIK BACKWARDS & FORWARDS TOTAL POETRY: THIS INTERVIEW DISTRIBUTED BY TELEPATHY OR BY JUST THE MOVEMENT OF MY HAIR (OF AN AFRICAN LION) AND ALL ITS ELECTRIC CHARGE
