The exhibition will premiere on 9th December, viewers will be able to see Blanchett as a news anchor, ballet dancer, teacher and even a homeless man, a guise which she is unrecognisable in.

In Manifesto Cate reads 13 artist writings in the various characters, including Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, André Breton as well as the manifestos of Futurists, Dadaists, Situationists and Dogma 95.

Rosefeldt's work aims to explore the role of the artist in contemporary times. He commented on his process and how he interplayed the various manifestos: "I started to play with the texts and to edit, combine and rearrange them into new texts that could be spoken and performed.''

''I would take a sentence by one artist and interrupt it with the words of another one.''

"While in one way the process of collaging them together was maybe not very respectful to the original texts, in another I liked the way that it referenced this idea of a collection of voices, a conversation."

Manifesto will be at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne from 9th December 2015 – 13th March 2016.
