“It is both a confirmation of Blanchett’s sheer presence and acumen as an actor and Rosefeldt’s shrewdness and intellect as an artist.” – Sydney Morning Herald. Drawing on more than 50 manifestos by artists, architects, choreographers, and filmmakers, this highly theatrical cinematic installation by cinematographer and video artist Julian Rosefeldt reinterprets these famous texts as poetic monologues that are brought to life by Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett.

By portraying often-overlooked cultural and historical narratives, Chia-En Jao, Kan Xuan, Sun Xun, Sun Yuan & Peng Yu, Tsang Kin-Wah, Yangjiang Group, and Zhou Tao explore concepts of geography and nation-state. Their artworks address specific locations, such as their hometowns, remote borderlands, or a group of uninhabited islands, as well as abstract ideas, such as territory, boundaries, or even utopia. China, too, is presented here, not only as a country but also as a notion that is open for questioning and reinvention.
