Julian
Rosefeldt, a German artist pays his respects to the traditional artist
manifestos of the 20th-century in a captivating video installation called,
Manifesto. MAC, formally known as the Musèe d’art Contemporain de Montrèal,
will showcase this tour de force in October 2018, where audiences can experience
the expression of each literary artwork as conversations, speeches, and
commands. While portraying thirteen different personas, Cate Blanchett recites the
famous and lesser known contemporary quotes from the influential artist manifestos
of the 20th-century. In Blanchett’s portrayal of each character – including an
Anchorwoman, Stockbroker, and a Teacher – you will ultimately get an understanding
of what each manifesto truly means.
