My home is a dark and cloud-hung land
Oval Office, Schauspielhaus Bochum
 
In the four channel film installation My home is a dark and cloud-hung land (2011) Julian Rosefeldt highlights the ever more problematic concept of home. Rosefeldt focuses on the forest as a central and ambivalent motif of German history and culture, creating a surreal collage from mythical and fairy tale creatures, operas, romantic feelings and the history of National Socialism.

MANIFESTO: Art x Agency
Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC
 
Manifesto: Art x Agency is a group exhibition that examines the art historical impact of artist manifestos from the 20th century to present day. Organized by the Hirshhorn’s Chief Curator Stéphane Aquin, Manifesto: Art x Agency also marks the Washington, D.C., debut of German artist Julian Rosefeldt’s multichannel film installation, Manifesto, presented alongside a diverse selection of works from the museum’s permanent collection. Comprising more than 100 works of art and ephemera created over a hundred-year period, Manifesto: Art x Agency explores how artists used manifestos to engage with the political and social issues of their time and how contemporary practices still employ art as a tool in the making of history.

Julian Rosefeldt: Manifesto
The Israel Museum, Jerusalem (solo show) 
 
The 13-channel film installation Manifesto (2015) pays homage to the moving tradition and literary beauty of artist manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists, Dogme 95 and other artist groups, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers.
 
Rosefeldt’s work reveals both the performative component and the political significance of these declarations. Often written in youthful rage, they not only express the wish to change the world through art but also reflect the voice of a generation. Exploring the powerful urgency of these historical statements, which were composed with passion and conviction by artists many years ago, Manifesto questions whether the words and sentiments have withstood the passage of time.
