Julian Rosefeldt. Manifesto. Works 2005–2017
HOW Art Museum, Shanghai (solo show)

The HOW Art Museum presents with its inaugural exhibition MANIFESTO: Julian Rosefeldt. Works 2005-2017 the first comprehensive and institutional solo show of Julian Rosefeldt in China since 2012. Comprising five film installations and 21 photo works, it renders the most important aspects of his artistic production over the past 12 years visible.

The recent and widely known work Manifesto (2015) marks the heart of the exhibition. Next to this central piece, Rosefeldt’s two most recent film works are presented: The Swap (2015) and In the Land of Drought (2015/2017) comment upon recent discourses debating the future of our planet and society. Rosefeldt previously addressed modern man’s alienation from nature in works such as the 3-channel installation Clown (2005) or brought the relationship between man and nature to another level when demonstrating the strong boundaries between the notions of nature, arts and politics as they once appeared during the period of German Romanticism with The Ship of Fools (2007).

Deutschland 8 – German Art in Beijing
Today Art Museum, Peking (group show)

The exhibition aims to bring closer the diversity of the German art scene with established and emerging positions to the Chinese audience. Painting, sculpture, installation, photography and video art will be simultaneously on view at eight different, renowned museum venues throughout Beijing. New works as well as key works by the most important artists will highlight the historical context and developments in German Art from 1945 to the present day, but also focus on current artistic topics and contents.

Julian Rosefeldt presents his four-channel film installation My home is a dark and cloud-hung land (2011). It is thematically bound to the German concept of ‘Heimat’ (homeland). Rosefeldt focusses on the forest as a central and ambivalent motif, omnipresent in German history and culture.

Manifesto de Julian Rosefeldt 
Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires (solo show)

For the first time Julian Rosefeldt's 13-channel film installation Manifesto (2015) will be presented in South America. It pays homage to the moving tradition and literary beauty of artists' manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. It draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers. Passing the ideas of Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, André Breton, and other influencers through his lens, Rosefeldt has edited and reassembled thirteen collages of artists’ manifestos.
