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.

Bettina Hoffmann: Choreography of Movement
Daily until December 23, 2018 from Sunset to Midnight
Presented on the Goethe-Institut’s windows on St-Laurent Blvd. and Ontario St.
Originally from Berlin, Germany, Bettina Hoffmann has been a major figure in the artistic scene in Montreal since the 2000s. Known for her photography, installations, and videos, Hoffmann’s work possesses an intriguing, enigmatic power derived in part through her precisely-composed images and choreographed movements and through her use of ambiguous human interactions void of psychology. Her body of work is at the crossroads between photography, film, sculpture and dance, with a particular focus in recent years on choreography. The Goethe-Institut is pleased to present three of her most recent dance-related works, Drain (2012), Hold-On (2015) and Silent Office (2016/2018).
