The book Degré 48 produced by g.u.i marks the final stage of this long-term project of the same name : Degré 48. It presents a selection of around twenty documents per manifesto thus allowing the reader to follow their construction and development in time and space. More than archival documents, these manifestos function as scores and as a space of reinterpretation of the performance. It is up to the reader to reconstruct a version, which will necessarily be a free-form interpretation. But after all, that is precisely the function of the manifesto: to appropriate a message, play with different aesthetic forms and confront them the surrounding world.
