European Manifesto of Weaknesses (or Elegy of a life without slippers and the memory of a soft cushion)
A proposition by Mehdi Brit and Morgane Rousseau, with Jeanne Moynot, Anna Byskov and Natsuko Uchino.
On 18 October 2013, we will celebrate the European Manifesto of Weaknesses (or Elegy of a life without slippers and the memory of a soft cushion) ("Le Manifeste Européen des Faiblesses"), echoing the famous Cabaret Voltaire as well as the energy and madness of the Dada movement. This manifesto is in response to our attempt to draft a transgressive theory somewhere between the absurd and performance, for the manifesto is a popular, cross-cutting and vindictive response that explores the winding paths between art and society. Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, now home to our "Dadaist" residence, will open its doors for a discussion that directly links the audience to a participative artistic situation, as we all wish to propose, experiment and transgress. The European Manifesto of Weaknesses reveals our obsession for performance and examines a creative meeting in the form of a collective project to discover and share with three artists - Jeanne Moynot, Anna Byskov and Natsuko Uchino.
