Julian Rosefeldt’ Manifesto
June 5 @ 7:00 pm - July 19 @ 11:00 pm5€
A 13-channel film installation by German artist and filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt which pays homage to the literary beauty of 20th century artistic manifestos.
From Futurism, Dada, and Pop Art to Fluxus, Lars von Trier’s Dogme 95, and Jim Jarmusch’s Golden Rules of Filmmaking, these texts are re-interpreted as monologues, performed by Cate Blanchett. The celebrated Australian actress embodies these manifesto collages, portraying thirteen distinct roles, among which, a choreographer, a school teacher, a factory worker, a stockbroker, and a homeless man.
The film reveals both the performative dimension and the political significance of these declarations, while questioning the role of the artist today. Rosefeldt’s work can be found in the collections of some of the greatest museums in the world.
