Julian Rosefeldt: Manifesto, 2015

Today a survey exhibition at the „Australian Centre for the Moving Image“ (ACMI) in Melbourne opens to the public, presenting the work of Berlin based artist Julian Rosefeldt, including his current thirteen-channel work „Manifesto“. In his brand-new film installation, Rosefeldt questions the role of the artist in society today, showcasing a collage of 13 different manifestos from artists, architects, choreographers and filmmakers, from Filippo Tommaso Marinettis Manifesto of Futurism up to Dogma 95. The Australian actor Cate Blanchett performs the monologues and takes on 13 different personas spanning from newscaster to factory worker or homeless man.

„Manifesto“ will be exhibited along with various other works by Julian Rosefeldt until 14th March 2016 at ACMI in Melbourne. In late summer of 2016 „Manifesto“ will be shown at the Ruhrtriennale.

„Manifesto“ is a co-production of the Ruhrtriennale with the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart, Sprengel Museum Hannover, Burger Collection Hongkong, Bayerischer Rundfunk, and the Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg.
