The Essential Guide to Performing Michael Mandiberg

June 2002

Supported by Jerome Foundation

Part user’s manual, part experimental self-portrait, The Guide is an on-line tutorial that teaches the user the details of performing Michael Mandiberg’s persona. It is part of The Exchange Program, a series of exchanges in which Michael and nine others switch lives with one another for ten days. The guide-as-user-manual turns personality into procedures, situations, and props.
