new ReSite- Manual of Scores,Manifestos and Radical Actions

Launch of new ReSite- Manual of Scores, Manifestos and Radical Actions

ReSite magazine, published by Field Study, will be re-launched with a new format and philosophy of intent. ReSite will no longer be a loose-leaf publication, but instead will take the form of a wire bound manual. ReSite will remain an assembling publication where all pages are to be conceived as having an element of audience participation or interaction. Works can take the form of scores, instructions or interventions, to be realised by the reader.

ReSite is part of the tradition of Fluxus editions where anyone can perform a Fluxus action or score. In addition to the concept brief, future participants should think about their works in a more critical way and tap into the rich tradition of the avant-grade. ReSite will become a manual reflecting the diversity of current alternative practice. Hopefully this will encourage writers and musicians to produce visual scores as well as continuing contributions by conceptual artists.

Here is a random list of influences that might inspire you.

Cornelius Cardew’s Scratch Music, Surrealist Manifesto by Andre Breton, Art-Language, An Anthology edited by La Monte Young and Jackson Mac Low, Fluxus Kits, Notations by John Cage, Grapefruit by Yoko Ono, Neoist Manifestos, Whole Earth Catalogue, Little Red School Book, Potlatch, Situationist Times, Pataphysics, Oulipo, Auto- Destructive Art Manifesto by Gustav Metzger, S.C.U.M.
