ARTISTS AGAINST ADMIN. ( AAA ).
We the undersigned believe in the power of action. We believe in the present not the future. We believe that constantly thinking about the future changes the nature of our present action and will no longer deal in future tenses.
We will delete all requests for plans, plots and deals.
We will filter out all demands for a bureaucratically filled package of work.
We resist all contractual contras and petty form filling.
We abhor the mission statement and the tag line.
We dismiss all notions of quantification.
We hereby declare and restate our intent on action and action only.
From this moment our only intention is : to think about and make work.
We demand honest conversations, quick decisions,economical organisation and cheap publicity.
We demand simple applications, straightforward dialogue and templates for all.
We demand fast payment for work and transparency for fees.
We demand a streamlined system.
We demand spontaneity and life.
No to target audiences.
No to contractual contras.
No to slow responses from promoters.
No to idiotic emails.
No to the proliferation of management and marketing.
No to admin.
WHAT DO WE WANT ? TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT.
WHEN DO WE WANT IT? NOW.
