Julian Rosefeldt’s MANIFESTO pays homage to the emblematic way of thinking of twentieth-century modernism and takes viewers back to the era of artists’ manifestos. The film installation stars Cate Blanchett and presents short scenes from the lives of twelve contemporary women and a man in thirteen episodes. The work made in 2015 and totalling 130 minutes adapts an outdated form of expression – that of manifestos – to today’s reality through twelve life stories set in the most varied layers of society.

Our aim is to breathe new life into some of these museum sculptures, and to make them more visible with the help of some contemporary sculptors and other artists who work in three dimensions.
