The hercole’s manifesto is a system of ideas consisting of 11 statements, a trigger for analysis, deepening, comparison and debate.

Each idea is a standpoint, a provocation intended to be discussed. The manifesto statements form the perimeter of all its reflections and activities. They also serve as classification categories for its archive, an aggregation of projects in dialogue with each other.

The hercole’s manifesto is not definitive, nor immutable; it is an open and shared letter."

The archive is the unstable representation of a trace in memory. Cataloging and remembering shape our present and project us into the future. By choosing to archive something we carry out a practice of identifying ourselves. The narrative is ours; it becomes the skin of a common organism of which to feel a part.

The hercole archive welcomes all kinds of media. It is organized through the statements of the manifesto that become archival categories. The archive is open and collaborative, you can send in your own project or suggest other sources inherent to hercole.
