Revolution of the vulnerable
Concept Workshop: Boris Nikitin
In the context of "Staging Realities" at Goethe Institut Mumbai.
Curated by Anuja Ghosalkar and Kai Tuchman
Write a draft of a manifesto.
It must not be shorter than 400
and not longer than 4000 characters.
Take at least 20 Minutes to write it.
Formulate and postulate what is important
how you want to work
how you want to think
what you want to believe in
how you want to desire.
While writing and thinking:
try to be serious and unserious at the same time.
You can also invent an „alter ego“ if you want.
Don’t think about others. Don’t do it „right“.
Try to focus.
With a manifesto you don’t just represent yourself,
but you are creating a reality while writing.
Every manifesto is a kind of a coming-out.
Dare to be propagandistic.
Observe the moments in which you hesitate. They are interesting and nice.
Try to be vulnerable.
Try to use your vulnerability as an ability.
Don’t be afraid of being naive.
It’s ok to be vulgar.
Every sentence can be an experiment of and with the future.
Don’t forget: it’s a draft.
Don’t finish it.
