Julian Rosefeldt, Cate Blanchett
Manifesto, Julian Rosefeldt
This Rosefeldt’s work is an homage to the artist’s manifesto – from Dada to Fluxus, Pop Art, Conceptual Art and Dogma 95 – and raises questions about the role of art in Modernism. Cutting and combining these historic texts, the artist created poetic collages that are spoken and embodied by actress Cate Blanchett playing thirteen different roles. Whether as a choreographer of a dance troupe, primary school teacher, eulogist, factory worker, stock broker or as a homeless man, each of her characters brings the historic manifestos into the everyday world of the present. The phrases and demands hold their own in their new settings and prove to be surprisingly up-to-date and pertinent.
At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
