From acclaimed visual artist Julian Rosefeldt, Manifesto draws on the writings of a wide range of artist groups, including Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists and Dogma 95 adherents. He edits and reassembles them to form a collage of artists’ manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. Transforming from anchorwoman to homeless man, Cate Blanchett delivers a tour de force as she weaves together some of history’s most impassioned artistic statements to form 13 distinct vignettes, creating this stunning and contemporary call to action.
