Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Julian Rosefeldt's film Manifesto (2016) pays homage to the moving
tradition and literary beauty of artistic manifestos, ultimately questioning
the role of the artist in society today.
Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists,
Suprematists, Situationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups, and
the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers.
Passing the ideas of Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich,
André Breton, Sturtevant, Sol LeWitt, Jim Jarmusch, and other creators
through his lens, Rosefeldt has edited and reassembled thirteen collages
of artists' manifestos.
Performing these ‘new manifestos' as a contemporary call to action,
while inhabiting thirteen different personas – among them a school
teacher, a puppeteer, a newsreader, a factory worker and a homeless
man – Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett imbues new dramatic
life into both famous and lesser-known words in unexpected contexts.
Rosefeldt's film reveals the performative component and the political
significance of these declarations. Often written in youthful rage, they
not only express the wish to change the world through art but also
reflect the voice of a generation. Exploring the powerful urgency of
these historical statements, which were composed with passion and
conviction by artists many years ago, Manifesto questions whether the
words and sentiments have withstood the passage of time. Can they
be applied universally? And how have the dynamics between politics,
art and life shifted?
