Manifesta is the roving European biennial of contemporary art. It
changes its location every two years. Manifesta purposely strives to keep its
distance from what are often seen as the dominant centres of artistic
production, instead seeking fresh and fertile terrain for mapping a new
cultural topography. This includes innovations in curatorial practices,
exhibition models and education.
Every two years Manifesta mobilises people, ambitions, dreams and knowledge to aid in the realisation of the Manifesta Biennials. Each newly created network is utilised long after the biennial is over. The learning gained from each project developed by Manifesta informs its future practice.

lecture series, the Coffee Breaks and publications such as the Manifesta
