Les manifestes artistiques en quête d’historiens de l’art

Abstract : Starting from Manifesto, the 2016 Berlin video installation by the German artist Julian Rosefeldt, this article seeks to examine the manifesto in its double aspect: as artistic material and as an object of research. Recent studies, mainly French- and German-language, show a desire to enlarge the corpus of manifestos produced since the second half of the twentieth century in the fields of visual arts, literature, dance, cinema, as well as the new media. In so doing, these studies propose, on the one hand, subjective epistemological approaches, while at the same time reiterating earlier debates – dominated by literary studies – on the criteria of definition. While absent from these debates for a long period, art history could allow us to go beyond these legitimization discourses around the manifesto as an object of study, in order to nourish multidisciplinary dialogue through an analysis of its visual and historical aspects within a wider social history.
