Julian Rosefeldt
Avant-Garde and Apocalypse
11 May 2018–13 June 2018 | Dirimart

Julian Rosefeldt

For his first extensive presentation in Istanbul, Dirimart opens both galleries, in Dolapdere and Nişantaşı, to the films and photographs of Berlin-based artist Julian Rosefeldt, who has been celebrated worldwide for his film installation Manifesto (2015), a reenactment of historical avant-garde manifestos by artist groups such as the Dadaists, the Situationists, and Futurists, featuring Australian actress Cate Blanchett in thirteen different roles. In his films and photographs, Rosefeldt creates a highly aesthetic universe, with explicit formal references to the history of cinema and painting, but at the same time dealing with important social and political subjects such as totalitarianism, ecology, homeland, and migration, all treated in an ongoing playful dialogue with pop culture.
