Joint Manifesto of the Communist Party of the United Citizenry of Rijeka is a project in which the author gives away numbered and signed copies of his work to all the citizens of Rijeka and organises a joint performance to mark Labour Day. The programme aims to raise the awareness of the local community about workers’ fundamental rights and class relations in society, as well as about the strategies of resistance and the fight for workers’ rights through active participation in the development of a network of an informed citizenry. Through this network, the citizens present their views and defend their rights in the physical and virtual, public and media space by using the printed letters from the text of the Communist Manifesto that has been turned into thousands of authentic artworks for the citizens of Rijeka. The artist, in the form of a Labour Day performance in Titov Trg square, and in collaboration with volunteers and citizens of Rijeka, tries to collect the artworks in a joint book as the foundation for the development of future associations and activism.
Assuming that each citizen of Rijeka owns one letter from the Joint Manifesto of the Communist Party of the United Citizenry of Rijeka, each year on 1st May we intend to invite the citizens of Rijeka to unite in the celebration of Labour Day through reading, composing and redistributing of our joint revolutionary book.
The project’s author is Nemanja Cvijanović (HR). The design is by Mario Aničić (HR). The RIJEKA 2020 volunteering team and citizens of Rijeka participate in the implementation of the performative part of the project.
