Rainbow Manifesto: April 15th, 1966
Cover your head with a yellow hat because Tristan Tzara didn’t cover his head with one in 1916, 1918, 1919 and 1920.
Wear a violet coat because Jean-Paul Sartre, who said it hasn’t been sufficiently noted that the constructions, paintings and poem-objects of Surrealism were the manual realization of sterilities by which the sceptics of the Third Century B.C. justified their perpetual “epoche.” After which, Carneades and Philo, sure of not compromising themselves by an imprudent adherence, lived like everybody else. In the same way, the Surrealists, once the world is destroyed and miraculously preserved by its destruction, can shamelessly give full play to their immense love of the world never wore one.
Wear red gloves because fifteen years ago I was blamed by a Japanese Communist for not painting a red flag.
Wear orange pants because Circumference = 2 Π r
Wear green socks because the area of the circle = Π r²
Put on blue shoes
