    Roma - Exhibitions, from 26/02/19 to 05/05/19
  • Palazzo delle Esposizioni
    Palazzo delle Esposizioni, from 26/02/19 to 05/05/19




The architecture of the Palazzo delle Esposizioni is redesigned by Julian Rosefeldt's Manifesto installation covering 13 large screens with different stories which come together, every now and then, in the powerful rendering of a choral voice.

 The work, which was shown for the first time in 2015, pays homage to the moving tradition and literary beauty of 20th century artist manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today.

 For each of the 13 screens, Rosefeldt has created a collage of texts, drawing on the manifestos of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups or movements, and on the musings of individual artists, dancers and filmmakers such as Umberto Boccioni, Antonio Sant'Elia, Lucio Fontana, Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, André Breton, Sturtevant, Sol LeWitt, Jim Jarmusch, Guy Debord, Adrian Piper and John Cage.


Each season presents a different situation focusing, apart from the prologue, on eleven different female figures and on one male figure: a homeless man, a worker in a waste incineration plant, a CEO, a punk, a scientist, the speaker at a funeral, a puppeteer, the mother of a conservative family, a choreographer, a newsreader and a teacher. All the characters are played by Australian actress Cate Blanchett, who imbues new dramatic life into the words of the manifestos in unexpected contexts.

Manifesto, is written, directed and produced by Julian Rosefeldt. It has been co-commissioned by the ACMI – Australian Centre for the Moving Image Melbourne, the Art Gallery of New South Wales Sydney, the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and the Sprengel Museum Hanover. The work is co-produced by the Burger Collection Hong Kong and the Ruhrtriennale. It was realized thanks to the generous support of the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and in cooperation with Bayerischer Rundfunk.
