The Fucking Manifesto

Why a fucking manifesto?

Our digital transmission systems are hackneyed, a delicate veneer atop the bones of a system wearing thin. This failed, ecologically monstrous art experiment is in its death throes. Behold the terrible and awesome earning power of art; it bankrupted our modern world.

Only by working together can we tear asunder those frames and replace them with a unified understanding of reality’s raw viscera.

 

The Fucking Manifesto is based on five basic principles:

 

1. Art is Fucking and fucking is freedom

We build relationships so we might help each other in times of need. Obscene Works is dedicated to patronage: 10% of all profits from our projects becomes part of our patronage program to support aspiring artists.

 

2. Art is Capital and capital is capitulation

Human capital is about more than profits. It is defined by our ability to share those things which make us unique. We surrender our art to the world: all Obscene Works are DRM free and Creative Commons licensed.

 

3. Art is Consent and consent is revolutionary

When artists are given the right to consent not only in the process of creation, but throughout publication, the power of revolution lies within our control. Consent is primary: Obscene Works projects are created with consensus from all contributing artists.

 

4. Art is Collaboration and collaboration is community

Collaboration isn’t just a melding of minds coming together for joint creative effort. It reaps the benefits of community: all profits from Obscene Works projects are shared equally between participating artists.

 

5. Art is Obscene and obscenity works in mysterious ways

The mysteries of the obscene hide our greatest fears and our deepest desires. No artist or content which meets the guidelines of contributor consent shall be turned away from Obscene Works on grounds of moral objection.
