Dogme @25: help us write a new manifesto for culture

It’s almost 25 years since the Dogme 95 Manifesto revolutionised cinema. Lars von Trier and his three Danish Dogme brethren took a Vow of Chastity comprising ten rules which inspired filmmakers across the globe. Eschewing props, sets, lighting, filters and genres, refusing to credit the di-rector, and using handheld cameras, Dogme films forced creativity to flourish by subjecting film to strict constraints. Tonight, we want to see what happens when the same principles are applied to other kinds of cul-ture. What ten rules would a linguist design? Or a philosopher? How would a historian do Dogme history? Join Dogme expert Dr Claire Thomson, nerd comedian Dr Steve Cross, and a cast of researchers and media creatives to help us write a new Dogme Manifesto for culture in the 2020s.
