|MANIFESTO: Osaka Posters|
FORMAT: 8 Double-sided posters (438x570mm), cover sheet (219x285mm), 4-panel folded within vinyl envelope.
Produced in conjunction with the Osaka Contemporary Art Center (Osaka, Japan) as part of the initiative Osaka Arts Kaleidoscope (2005): a city-wide exhibition that involved eight Osaka-based non profit organizations (NPOs). The theme of Kaleidoscope, "Do Art Yourself," was intended to explore and propose ways in which the public can engage with arts-production, especially within daily life and social circumstances.
Atopia Projects collaborated with the eight NPOs (see list on left) to generate a series of eight posters that each explore the theme of "manifesto." Each poster serves as a "manifesto" for the associated NPO, while the posters collectively chart an expansive set of relationships between art, creativity, and socio-political concerns, action, and participation.
The set of posters are folded, packaged in resealable bags, and distributed within the Atopia Journal series.
