The SPIT! The manifesto is a series of performance interventions that use speech acts and performative gestures inspired by queer manifestos from the 1970s to the present. In 2017, commissioned by Frieze Projects, London, SPIT! wrote five manifestos that respond to contemporary pressing issues of sexual and gender oppression and which have been performed and interpreted by different queer performance artists since around the world. SPIT! also published The SPIT! Manifesto Reader, an anthology of historical and contemporary queer manifestos.
