Alexandre Osório, Portugal
Manifesto develops over a field covered with debris left behind by our ancestors and that we have received as an inheritance. We know that our freedom is conditioned by the intellectual property ownership. The deprivation of these impacts in all areas of our lives, causing changes and constraints in the construction of individual identity. We live in an area where opportunities do not circulate freely. This may seem a brutal, and it is, but as much as we talk about democracy, in fact little is true in theory that genius thrives where it grows, and in both rich and poor. History is full of such examples.
How did we get here? How do we continue to invent the future possibilities of being aware of the rubbish that drowns us? In a field covered with empty or full of loot you can still build something? We try to believe that yes, the genius there can come if we strive. But it takes us to commune in the past to understand what led to the present situation. Living in the past this is crucial in building a future. Memory, consciousness and the project can not walk dissociados.A History is full of such examples.
