bq. Art is passing through a latent period. A force exists which man is unable to express… It is for this reason that we are asking all men of science throughout the world, who are conscious of the fact that art is vital necessity for the human race, to orient a part of their research towards the discovery of luminous and malleable substances and the sound producing instruments that will make possible the development of tetra-dimensional art.

The very notion of a collective avant-garde, with the militant aspect it implies, is a recent product of historical conditions that are simultaneously giving rise to the necessity for a coherent revolutionary program in culture and to the necessity to struggle against the forces that impede the development of such a program. Such groups are led to transpose into their sphere of activity organizational methods created by revolutionary politics, and their action is henceforth inconceivable without some connection with a political critique. “more>>”:http://www.mediumrecords.com/random/?page_id=5
