Manifesto wall in Brave Fixed World exhibition ©Łòdź Design Festival
26 October 2014
The Brave Fixed World exhibition at Maker Library Fixhub featured a wall of manifestos from the Maker Movement.
Manifestos are declarations of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government. Manifestos promote new ideas with prescriptive notions for carrying out changes.
Movements and communities use manifestos to set a vision into action. Fixing, repair, mending and straight on doing have been the subject of a growing number of groups setting out their agendas to assert their activism. In one way or another all the exhibits and activities in the Fixhub are applications of one of these manifestos and share the call for fixing attitudes.
The manifestos included the Repair Manifesto by Platform 21, The Maker’s Bill of Rights by Makezine, The Fixer’s Manifesto by Sugru, iFixit, London, UK as well as Aldous Huxley inspired posters by Koby Barhad.
