Manus hand + festus tangible = manifestum, declaration
Manifesto24 is a statement in favour of making things by hand and with analogue technology.
The curator of the project, so_helsinki, has invited open-minded artists to interpret the theme either in print or their studio.

Unique works created with an old letterpress printing press or clay moulding, illustrating, through contemporary art, a tradition and the power of the word that is disappearing.
Throughout the ages, artists have been at the forefront of highlighting phenomena that are relevant in their own time.
The artists in Manifesto 24 show how a valuable tradition can survive, become visible, and also be renewed in this age.

Concept, curation and production: so_helsinki / Veera Kulju, Ilkka Kärkkäinen
