Serpentine Gallery Manifesto Marathon
Manifesto Marathon, the third in the Serpentine Gallerys acclaimed series of Marathon events, took place in the closing weekend of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008, designed by Frank Gehry.
The Manifesto Marathon came at a time when artists had begun to work less in formal groups and defi ned artistic movements. The publication showcased a new generation of artists alongside practitioners from the worlds of literature, design, science, philosophy, music and fi lm who were returning to the historical notion of the manifesto. The Manifesto Marathon drew on the Serpentine Gallerys close proximity to Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, which has been used as a platform by Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, George Orwell and William Morris, among many others.
