See Cate Blanchett take on 13 roles in one, in a dramatic new film installation at the Art Gallery of NSW. Co-commissioned by the Gallery in partnership with ACMI, the Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart in Berlin and the Sprengel Museum in Hanover, Manifesto is a bold new multichannel work from celebrated German artist Julian Rosefeldt, with the Oscar-winning screen star at its centre.

Housed at the Gallery from May until November, Rosefeldt's installation questions the role of the artist today, drawing on the philosophies of numerous pre-eminent artists, including writer Andre Breton, sculptor Claes Oldenberg and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. From these sources, Rosefeldt has crafted a collage of artistic manifestos, which Blanchett articulates through the guise of various characters, including a school teacher, a newsreader, a homeless man and a puppeteer.
