Manifesto

Manifesto, starring Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett, 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 impassioned 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 from more than 50 original texts.

Manifesto: Live from Tate Modern: special live event exclusive to cinemas will include a private view introduced by Cate Blanchett and featuring artworks in the Tate Modern’s collection related to the film, plus live on-stage conversation at the gallery with the film’s director, Julian Rosenfeldt and editor Bobby Good.
