Julian Rosefeldt - Manifesto
German artist Julian Rosefeldt produced Manifesto in 2015. This immersive video installation consisting of thirteen large-screen projections stands as a tribute to the literary power of artistic manifestos. This artwork/event, which lies at the crossroads between film, performance and installation, allows audiences to experience a series of scenes screened simultaneously showing us the same actor (Cate Blanchett) taking on various roles. All of the monologues spoken — actually, the only words spoken in the piece — are formed out of various artistic manifestos published over the last 150 years or so.
