ABSTRACT

The Avant-garde art movement of 20th Century was one of main forces, which differentiate the modern art from the classical era. Futurism, Dada, and Surrealism initiated their activity with Manifest, in which they declare their world view and ideology in public in a very aggressive way. That the artists, not politicians and social activists has begun their activity with manifest, is one of the important features of Avant-garde art movement. What is the meaning of this kind of action? Which meaning has it with their identity as artists? This paper aims to give answer to these questions. It begins with a short overview of the definition and the history of manifests, to show the characteristics of this genre. It focuses on ‘manifest of opposition’, the manifest of those, who has no social and political power. Excluded from the social and political power, it has to use the performative dimension of manifest and to try to call the collective subject of the future society, which the manifest it self want to create. Avant-garde artists, especially the Futurist made use of this features of manifest in the area of art movement.
