Julian Rosefeldt: Manifesto

Nervanderinkatu 3, 00100 Helsinki
Kunsthalle Helsinki
What is the role of the artist today? Julian Rosefeldt's sensational 13-channel film installation Manifesto (2015) is an homage to the tradition of artist manifestos. Rosefeldt constructed a collage of historical texts and combined the contents with contemporary contexts. The result was a 'manifesto of manifestos': 13 poetic monologues, which relay the voice of the artists, ranging from Dadaists to Situationists, from Kasimir Malevich to Jim Jarmusch. The texts, written with the passion of the youth, tell of a desire to change the world through art. #juhlaviikot
