Manifesto 09: Toward A Theory of Misbehavior

The Sniper's Log

Storefront for Art and Architecture will present “Towards a Theory of Misbehavior,” a Manifesto Series event showcasing different generational approaches towards architecture theory on the occasion of the release of The Sniper’s Log: Architectural Chronicles of Generation X by Alejandro Zaera Polo on Friday April 27, 2012 from 7 to 9pm at the Storefront gallery.

The event will include a live staging of manifestos that will present different hypothesis and methodologies towards architectural acts of disobedience. The presentations will be followed by a discussion between the presenters moderated by Stan Allen.

Storefront’s ongoing Manifesto Series is part of an effort to encourage the formulation of positions in relation to selected topics and instigate spirited discussion and exchange in a dynamic and polemical context. The format therefore differs from that of a typical symposium.

Rather than a synthetic lecture, participants are invited to present a concise, point-by-point manifesto of 4 minutes of length and a maxiumu of ten points, with the hope that the ideas exposed will provide a ground for discussion to test and discuss different hypotheses in real time. This is the 8th event in the Manifesto Series.

Presenters include:
Kenneth Frampton
Peter Eisenman
Bernard Tschumi
Cynthia Davidson
Jeff Kipnis
Stan Allen
Sylvia Lavin
Sanford Kwinter
Alejandro Zaera Polo
Michael Meredith
Anna Pla CatalĂ 
Bjarke Ingels
