no manifest
This isn’t an apology for anything. Or, well, it is.
Just as acceptance turns lights on, we want to emphasise the shade which comes from negative responses.
To those who – because of dignity, ideology or other reasons – have turned turn down a prize, holding an exhibition, making a record, drawing a comic, taking a photo, shooting a film, writing a book, giving an interview, giving a concert, taking a grant, putting a statue on a roundabout, contributing to the balde... glory.
Because the negative – contrary to popular belief – builds just as much as acceptance does.
