Visual artist and activist Ai Weiwei and Pritzker Prize-winning architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron collaborate on a new site-specific commission that leverages both the vast scale of the Park Avenue Armory's drill hall and its history as a public meeting space. Exploring the meaning of public space in our surveillance-laden world, the installation references the story of Hansel and Gretel, in which children lose their way and feel a sense of menace in a space they know and trust. The artists take advantage of the architecture of the drill hall — its openness and 80-foot height — to create a disconcerting environment with an unexpected entrance wherein every movement is tracked and surveyed by drones and communicated to an unknown public. Accompanying this installation will be talks and programs by artists, philosophers, and activists.
Hansel & Gretel builds on a legacy of over 15 years of collaboration among Weiwei, Herzog, and de Meuron, who have worked together on such design projects as the 2012 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion and the National Stadium in Beijing, created for the 2008 Summer Olympics and nicknamed the "Bird's Nest" for its façade of interwoven steel.

Inspired by the tradition of artist manifestos, Julian Rosefeldt's Manifesto is a collage of artistic declarations of the 20th century, reinterpreted as poetic monologues that provoke timeless questions about the artist's role in society. The 13 scenes that compose Manifesto draw on manifestos of more than 50 artists from the past century. The material is woven together into dramatic soliloquies that highlight specific movements or schools of thought. The texts are brought to life by Cate Blanchett, who embodies 13 different roles in a kaleidoscopic series of characterizations ranging from a funeral orator to a TV anchorwoman to a corporate CEO to a homeless man. Projected simultaneously on adjacent screens in a site-specific presentation for the Park Avenue Armory's drill hall, the text and images blend together in a highly theatrical cinematic installation that recaptures the defiant spirit of its source material for a contemporary audience.
