Manifestos for Thinking and Living
Melissa & Sarah Laing, 2011
Saatchi Gallery, Auckland New Zealand
Taking inspiration from the political, literary and art manifestos of the nineteenth and early twentieth century, Sarah Laing, novelist and graphic designer, and Melissa Laing, artist and theorist, created manifestos for thinking and living. Making cases for free universities, (un)cultivated lawns, more design, and fair remuneration of artists, Sarah and Melissa performed and documented the manifestos in community halls around Auckland.
