The Manifesto Library collects, documents, preserves, and distributes a global selection of historical and contemporary manifestos. This project researches manifestos in the public domain that address a wide spectrum of social justice, political, and economic concerns by feminists, technologists, African-Americans, militants, trans, Latina/os, and artists, among others. The project opens access points for artists, activists and citizens to encounter and exchange ideas. Previously published manifestos (anthologies, pamphlets, etc.) as well as manifestos from the public domain are included in the collection. Currently, the Manifesto Library houses over 100 manifestos, 60 of which were published for this project.
