Currently, Rosina Ivanova is working on her publication, Manifesto Compilation as Freedom Songswhich will be published by SMØR Press in Trondheim 2019, Norway. The book is a curated selection of performing artists she has met all over the world and who have influenced her life, work and thinking. She has asked each of them to propose a manifesto to be translated into a visual language and then given to a local artist (in Trondheim) to interpret the visual work into a performance. It is an attempt to translate text into an image and then into a performative action.


In times of constant crisis, violent political orders, austerity measures, forced displacement and domestic violence, the author hopes to nurture sensitivity for the vulnerable. The selection of the manifestos is based on elements that advocate states of freedom within the performance art practice that inspire urgency in experimental methods through voice, body and text, when current modes of being no longer suffice to describe the complexity of social reality. The focus is on approaches to imaginative writing, cross-disciplinary action and freedom of voice.
