Европейская биеннале современного искусства Manifesta
Manifesta, the roving European Biennial of Contemporary art, changes it location every two years - Rotterdam (1996), Luxembourg (1998), Ljubljana (2000), Frankfurt (2002), San Sebastian (2004), Nicosia (2006 - cancelled), Trentino-South Tyrol (2008), Murcia in dialogue with northern Africa (2010), Genk, Limburg, Belgium (2012) and St. Petersburg (2014) hosted by the State Hermitage Museum. Manifesta 11 will be hosted by the city of Zurich in 2016. 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 the mapping of a new cultural topography. This includes innovations in curatorial practices, exhibition models and education. Each Manifesta biennial aims to investigate and reflect on emerging developments in contemporary art, set within a European context. In doing so, we present local, national and international audiences with new aspects and forms of artistic expression.
