Abstract

REYBURN, Duncan. Repetitions repeatedly repeated: mimetic desire, ressentiment, and mimetic crisis in Julian Rosefeld's Manifesto (2015). IT [online]. 2019, n.33, pp.1-22. ISSN 2617-3255.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2617-3255/2018/n33a12.

This paper offers an exploration of Julian Rosefeld's film Manifesto (2015), which is a fascinating amalgamation and interpretation of modernist, avant gardist manifestos. The paper employs the film itself as a hermeneutical framework, especially is use of the rhetorical-hermeneutical device of repetition, and also makes use of René Girard's mimetic theory. Through this double-hermeneutic, two aims are set out: the first being to offer a way to rethink the meaning of the art manifesto as that modernist genre par excellence and the second being a way to rethink trends in artistic and creative production in general.

Keywords : art manifestos; René Girard; hermeneutic mimetic theory; creative innovation; ressentiment.
