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 video by Greek artist served as a reflection on the relationship between the artist and a banker working in international finance. The artist engaged the banker Josephin Varnholt in a couple of dance routines based on the “efforts" developed by the choreographer Rudolf von Laban, who created a system for understanding the more subtle characteristics of movement with respect to inner intention. The video was exhibited inside a structure made of concrete, pictures, texts, and several presentations inside the Bank Julius Baer, where bankers and employees were invited to participate.
