After the Manifesto

Purchase Read Online Paperback
Purchase at Columbia University Press

There has been something of a mania for the manifesto in recent years. While only a little while ago one could still hear about the absence of manifestos in architecture, today we seem to be surrounded by them—on paper, on-line, within exhibitions, at events, in built form. The urgency of the genre has returned to prominence at a moment of economic crisis and political protests over inequality, yet also appears wedded ever more intimately to official institutions of culture. For some, the manifesto remains an archaism, the product of another century whose current revival artfully masks the fact that it has outlived its use. For others, the manifesto remains protean, a form that not only continues to remake itself but stands to be reclaimed in our age of rapidly changing media. For still others it is precisely the outmoded, untimely qualities of the manifesto that makes it so interesting today. After the Manifesto brings together architects and scholars to revisit the past, present, and future of the manifesto, a prism through which to question the present state of architectural culture.

With essays by Rubén Alcolea, Craig Buckley, Beatriz Colomina, Héctor García-Diego, Carlos Labarta, José Ángel Medina, José Manuel Pozo, Juan Miguel Otxotorena, Felicity Scott, Jorge Tárrago, Bernard Tschumi, Anthony Vidler, Enrique Walker, and Mark Wigley.
