Throughout the 1970-80’s Jorge Orta stamped his artworks with slogans, which were then subsequently distributed through a number of alternative artistic circuits. The cast bronze plaque at the base of the wooden stamp is the title of one of the manifestos. Working in collaboration since the 1990’s, Lucy + Jorge Orta continue to build on the founding principles of these early manifestos.
