Does the recent explosion of the architectural manifesto signal a new urgency of the form, or does it represent a hopeless effort to resuscitate something that has outlived its useful lifespan? After the ManifestoA brings together architects and scholars to revisit the past, present and future of the manifesto. In what ways have manifestos transformed the field over the last 50 years, and in what ways has the manifesto itself been transformed by new modes of communication? Authors include Ruben Alcolea, Craig Buckley, Beatriz Colomina, Carlos Labarta, Felicity D. Scott, Bernard Tschumi, Anthony Vidler, Enrique Walker, and Mark Wigley.
Craig Buckley is an assistant professor in Art History at Yale University, and the former Director of Print Publications at Columbia GSAPP.
