Art does not come from nowhere or anywhere.

Acclaimed German artist, Julian Rosefeldt creates narrative and non-linear video installations that carry viewers into surreal, theatrical realms. Inspired equally by film, art and pop-culture histories, Rosefeldt uses familiar cinematic tropes and devices to engage with dislocation, alienation and social and psychological disruption. Whilst his narratives are often ambiguous and elliptical, Rosefeldt employs humour and satire to seduce audiences into familiar worlds made strange.

Listen to Rosefeldt discussing the manifestos that informed his thirteen-channel work Manifesto, from the writings of the Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Situtationists and Dogma 95, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers.
