Product Description

Review

The Manifesto is remarkable for its imaginative power ... it is the first great modernist work of art (Marshall Berman)

This collection is a must ... because the passion that erupted in the early 20th century is in such counterpoint to our own more apathetic era (Lesley McDowell Independent)

This ingenious anthology...is an inspiring book (Scotland on Sunday)

100 Artists' Manifestos [is] deftly selected and stylishly introduced by Alex Danchev (Terry Eagleton Times Literary Supplement)

An absorbing capsule history of culture over the past century (John Gray Literary Review)

Editor ALEX DANCHEV is the author of an acclaimed biography of artist Georges Braque and is Professor of International Relations at the University of Nottingham.

Format: Paperback
Having seen this book at the Tate while visiting the Vorticists exhibition, as an artist I couldn't resist buying it. Concise introductions to each manifesto enlighten the reader and draw you into the strange and sometimes perverse worlds of the art movements that have shaped 20th century thought and aesthetics. I love it and draw on it every time I have a crisis of creativity - an inspiring read!

Clear and to the point. An excellent collection for student or theorists, and a fascinating review of creative, emotive responses from minds across the century in response to the key eras and cultural forces that shaped us all.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
...you will find it inside the tin in this case, or, in other words, it says "100 artists' manifestos" and 100 artists manifestos is what you will get, their mostly glorious, turgid, self-indulgent and inflammatory declamations leavened by the helpful, personal and slyly witty introductions by the urbane editor, a Professor - of all things - of International Relations at Nottingham University. The book certainly seems to be popular, being displayed in leading bookshops and both inside and outside various Tate shows. There's plenty written about artists; here you can read what artists want to write about art. The book is weighted towards the earlier 20th century, when manifesto writing was all the vogue (hence "from the Futurists") with Dada, Surrealism et al, and progressively tails off, as no one got round to writing them very much, apart from Gilbert and George, Baselitz, Derek Jarman, Kitaj and, finally, the Stuckists, who feature with three of their effusions, the last including the immortal statement from the hitherto-unknown Edgeworth Johnstone of Muswell Hill: "YBA means You'll Believe Anything".

Format: Paperback
As a compilation of historical texts pertaining to 20th century art history, this book can hardly be bettered; the range of inclusion is quite impressive and the introductions, which have a nice balance between historical context and interesting trivia, are comprehensible bodies of information that provide a certain backdrop to the texts.
That being said, images to illustrate the topics might have been useful but considering the range of artists included in the book and the amount of possible royalties for the their artworks, -not to mention the increase in size that would lead to- this may be considered more of an economic condition, rather than an editorial faux-pas. While reading habits highly differ, such books usually don't have a cover-to-cover process but rather, lend themselves to pin-pointed references.
What does stick out in a negative sense is the glaring errors/omissions in proofreading. While getting 100% error-proof rate in such a body of text is very difficult, it's still a rather glaring omission in a book with so much potential as a sourcebook.

Ultimately, it's a quite useful source to have on one's shelf and it proves to be a good launchpad for a more in-depth research of a particular art movement of the 20th century. Certainly, there are publications with much more depth in a given period/movement but what appears to be the point of this sort of books is that they present a rather succinct overview, which the reader could follow with more profundity if s/he so wishes.
