That’s OK Manifesto
Thursday October 25 8 pm
Mercer Union – A Centre for Contemporary Art
Saturday October 27 4 pm
Presented by FADO Performance Art Centre
To mean nothing – that’s OK.
To have money and to be hungry – that’s OK.
To do nothing under surveillance – that’s OK.
To wait for better times and to be still alive – that’s OK.
To hate museums and rebellions – that’s OK.
To sing for old people and to dance with strangers – that’s OK.
– That’s OK manifesto written in collaboration with Kungl. Konsthögskolan (KKH) students.
