‘Manifesto’ (2015), the 13-channel film installation by German visual artist Julian Rosefeldt finally premieres on the West Coast at Hauser & Wirth in Los Angeles.
In ‘Manifesto’, actress Cate Blanchett assumes 13 different personas starting from a factory worker to a television news anchor to a homeless man in the course performing several historical artists’ manifestos. Rosefeldt’s work reveals both 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, ‘Manifesto’ invites us to ponder their enduring relevance and value.
The exhibition will be on view from October 27, 2018, through January 6, 2019.
