Imagine and invent five titles of books that
you would like all children to read and enjoy.

Homework (or Do It Yourself) (1996)

Look for a photo of a person who seems likeable or attractive. It's important that you can assume this person is dead. You don't need proof, your assumption is enough.

The photograph might be found in a variety of places: magazines, flea-markets, a family photo album. In any case, you must take great care in the search, which will continue until your intuition tells you that you've found the right photo. However, it is important that the person you choose is a complete stranger.

You take this photo and choose a frame according to your taste, as with any home decoration. This can be a wall frame or a standing frame, or possibly a case that you carry around.

Having brought this photo into your daily life, and now looking at it frequently, you should, as often as you like, think about who this person might have been, about what his or her life may have been like, about the cause of his or her death. You should find out how close you can get to this person, and at what point you would give him or her a name...

Please take a picture of the framed photograph and upload it
using the button below.

Recipe for chard stems gratin

Chard, also called blette, bette, poirée, jotte or joute, is in the chenopod family of leaves and stalks that can be cooked as a vegetable. Red, fleshy stalks of rhubarb leaves. White, stringy stalks of chard.

GRATIN FOR 4 TO 5 PEOPLE. You will need 2 bundles of chard, smaller is better.

1 SEPARATE THE WHITE STEMS FROM THE GREEN LEAVES. (The bin with the green lid is the container for non-recyclable household waste. The bin with the white lid is the container for jars and bottles without caps or lids.)

2 CUT EACH STEM INTO RECTANGLES, DON’T FORGET TO REMOVE THE FILAMENTS.

3 COOK SEPARATELY IN BOILING SALT WATER. THE LEAVES FOR 5 MINUTES, THE STEMS FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES. (15 Minutes is a film by John Herzfeld. Robert de Niro plays a cop with a cigar. Box office in France in 2001: 296,241 viewers.)

4 DRAIN. (The adjective is draining...)

5 PREPARE THE BÉCHAMEL SAUCE: MELT THE SALTED BUTTER (20 TO 30 G), ADD THE FLOUR, STIR IN AND MIX WITH MILK. PEPPER. (The Marquis de Béchemeil, maître d'hôtel of the Sun King Louis XIV, was famous for his gluttony. In his honour, a cook christened his name a variant of a creamy sauce. The “i” has since faded)

6 SPRINKLE A LITTLE GRATED SWISS CHEESE AND NUTMEG TO DUST. (“Bilbo slowed his pace and then when the dust settled, he disappeared.” Tolkien, Lord of The Rings.)

7 IN A BAKING DISH, PLACE THE CHARD, STEMS AND GREENS. MIX IN THE BÉCHAMEL SAUCE.

8 BAKE IN THE PREHEATED OVEN. (“It is black like an oven; the sky is dressed tonight like Scaramouche” Molière, Le Sicilien.) LET IT COOK AND BAKE, THERMOSTAT 6, 180 ° CELCIUS FOR 15 MINUTES... (Be present with the gratin, the big world. Gratin is the chosen party, distinguished, in a society or profession.)

9 INCLUDE A TRIVET TO PROTECT THE TABLECLOTH.

10 SERVE, EAT AND ENJOY... (“Enjoy, have fun, this is the time that is missing most' Anonymous.)

do it

Manchester International Festival and Manchester Art Gallery present do it 20 13, a groundbreaking exhibition that turns the notion of viewing into an active and performative encounter between artist and visitor.

do it 20 13 is a growing series of written artists’ instructions, each of which is interpreted anew every time it is enacted. These instructions range from the active and the absurd to the profound and the philosophical, some to be accomplished at the Gallery and others to be taken away and carried out at home. On this site you can upload your responses to selected instructions.

Conceived and curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist in conversation with Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier, do it began life in 1993. This 20th-anniversary show brings together artists from the first do it experiments with subsequent generations of artists who have been commissioned to reinterpret earlier instructions from Ai Weiwei and Adrian Piper to Tracey Emin and Richard Wentworth.
