MANIFESTO: ART X AGENCY

Daily, Now - April 6, 2020
From: 11:00 AM to 07:00 PM

In the realm of the Year of German-American Friendship, the Goethe-Institut Washington has partnered with the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden to develop Manifesto: Art x Agency, a major group exhibition that examines the cultural and historical impact of artist manifestos from the 20th century to the present day. 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, DC, debut of German artist Julian Rosefeldt’s multichannel film, 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. Manifesto: Art x Agency is organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and is made possible with major support from the Goethe-Institut Washington and the initiative Wunderbar Together: The Year of German-American Friendship 2018/19.
