From the Newscast to the Homeless, from Pop Art to Dogma 95: In MANIFESTO, two-time Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett can be seen in twelve memorable episodes, all of them dealing with manifestos of various twentieth-century art movements. Under the direction of the renowned film and video artist Julian Rosefeldt, a chameleon-like Blanchett shines in an unprecedented theatrical tour de force. In this impressive and contemporary wake-up call, Rosefeldt skillfully interweaves the most passionate statements in art history.
MANIFESTO draws on the texts of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists and other groups of artists, as well as on the reflections of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers. Rosefeldt worked on these manifestos, reassembling them in twelve brilliant collages and weaving together the ideas of Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, Andre Breton, Sturtevant, Sol LeWitt, Jim Jarmusch and many more.
Blanchett presents these “new” manifestos in the persona of her personages, including a teacher, a puppeteer, a factory worker, and a homeless person.
