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.

Una Szeemann, CH

Swiss artist Una Szeemann undertook hypnotherapy to analyse her intentions which she envisaged in the form of a seed. She then created objects inspired from that image. In the video, a psychotherapist talked about the process and a psychoanalyst discussed the objects. By integrating different states of consciousness into the creative process, this project explored alternative sources of inspiration.
