#AbstractTweetism – The Manifesto of a new art movement
Abstraction has been a big part of the art world for decades and of Islamic art for centuries. All this time literature has had to make do with letters and words all placed in sentences. No freedom has been allowed to individual letters. Where has been the playfulness, the joy of letters and words for their own sake?
At last literature catches up with art
Twitter is the last remaining bastion of the anti-abstract and now the defences have been broken down and abstraction has broken through. The first Abstract Tweet was sent today:
At last Twitter allows text to be enjoyed visually! This is as important a moment as when Kandinsky first improvised and composed his paintings. Literature will never be the same again.
#AbstractTweetism: The Manifesto:
There is an old and a new consciousness in literature and art.
#AbstractTweetism is an international movement and so forth.
Conventional language has taken the world as far as it can.
No more will be under the tyranny of words
The AbstractTweet is the poetry of the 21st century.
In the future the AbstractTweet will die but now it is the most vital force in Art
All those who #AbstractTweet sing of danger, rashness and audacity.
AbstractTweetism escapes the parrotry and pedanticism of letters
To join AbstractTweetism one only has to make an #AbstractTweet
By reading this Manifesto you have become an AbstractTweetism supporter.
