Art Manifestos

Charles Thomson - A single woman in London is never more than 6 inches away from the nearest ratArt to make you think. Is this social comment or a public information poster? It's Charles Thomson's A single woman in London is never more than 6" away from the nearest rat. I'll plump for the health warning aspect. Yes, potential tourists, Ghetto London is stuffed to bursting with big brown rats which are so bold they stroll around in daylight! Lawrence Pollard, another of the BBC's plethora of arts correspondents, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Futurist Manifesto with a nod at Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1926) and a dip into the Stuckist Manifesto created by Charles Thomson and Billy Childish in 1999 (CLICK).
