Manifesto by Julian Rosefeldt, consists of 13 synchronized films starring Cate Blanchett who performs different roles guided by a selection of fragments of more than 50 manifestos of the 20th-century art history.
As a result we get surprising and provocative monologues from the thoughts of dadaist, futurists, architects, film directors, etc. The work is a lucid approach to the importance of the historical texts in our contemporary world.
The German artist Julian Rosefeldt is internationally recognized for his meticulously choreographed films. Inspired by art history, film and popular culture, Rosefeldt creates stunning multi-screen installations "in which the characters fight in the theater of the world"
