The SPIT! Manifesto

SPIT! (Sodomites, Perverts, Inverts Together!) (Carlos Motta, John Arthur Peetz, Carlos Maria Romero) with Joshua Hubbard, Carlos Mauricio Rojas, Claudia Palazzo, Malik Nashad Sharpe, Daniel Brathwaite-Shirley, and Despina Zacharopoulou.

The SPIT! Manifesto was a series of performance interventions at Frieze Projects London (2017) that used speech acts and performative gestures inspired by queer manifestos from the 1960s to the present. SPIT! wrote a series manifestos that respond to contemporary pressing issues of sexual and gender oppression and invited performers Joshua Hubbard, Carlos Mauricio Rojas, Claudia Palazzo, Malik Nashad Sharpe, Daniel Brathwaite-Shirley, and Despina Zacharopoulou to interpret, (in cases) rewrite, and perform them.

SPIT! also published The SPIT! Manifesto Reader bringing together a selection of historical and contemporary queer manifestos to create a dialogue between radical queer histories past and present. The reader was distributed for free during the performances and is available online here: SPIT! (PDF)

Frieze Projects curator: Raphael Gygax. Frieze Projects Production: Keziah Goudsmit, Lewis Gilbert and Holly India Shuttleworth.
