Synopsis:

The 13-channel lm installation Manifesto pays homage to the tradition and literary beauty of artist manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. Drawing on the writings of artists, filmmakers, architects and dancers filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt has created thirteen collages of artists’ manifestos.

Performing in these, actress Cate Blanchett inhabits 13 different personas - from schoolteacher to factory worker - imbuing dramatic life into both famous and lesser known words in unexpected contexts, questioning whether their sentiments have withstood the passage of time.
