In 2012 MoMA acquired the work IKEA Disobedients by Andrés Jaque Architects / Office for Political Innovation as the first architectural performance to be included in its collection. On September 2012 the work was presented at MoMA as part of the ´9+1 Ways of Being Political: 50 Years of Political Stances in Architecture and Urban Design´ curated by Pedro Gadanho. On the occasion of the presentation a new addition to the IKEA Disobedients archive - 9 IKEA Disobedients from Queens and Long Island City whos domesticities challenged the notion of the home as an ´Independent Republic´- and two new performances were held at MoMA PS1. This video-manifesto accounts for both the archive extension and the performances.
