Manifesto + Intro

This special preview of Manifesto plus extended intro Q&A with Bina Daigeler is presented by Fashion & Cinema in association with The Telegraph

Julian Rosefeldt’s Manifesto, starring Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett, pays homage to the moving tradition and literary beauty of artistic manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today.

Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists, Dogma 95 and other artists groups, as well as the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers. Passing the ideas of Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, André Breton, Sturtevant, Sol LeWitt, Jim Jarmusch, and other creators through his lens, Rosefeldt has edited and reassembled thirteen collages of artists’ manifestos.

Performing these ‘new manifestos’ as a contemporary call-to-action, Cate Blanchett inhabits thirteen different personas, and imbues remarkable dramatic life into both famous and lesser-known words in unexpected contexts. Her extraordinary transformations are manifested with the combined expertise of Costume Designer Bina Daigeler and Make-Up Artist Morag Ross.

Bina Daigeler will join us to talk about the challenges of creating the costumes for the thirteen characters played by Cate Blanchett in the film
