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.

Manifesta 13 Marseille was one of the only international biennials to take place during the global pandemic COVID-19, the biennial ended earlier than planned due to the second national lockdown

During Manifesta 2, Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi, worked with two Luxembourg newspapers: the daily tageblatt and the weekly d'Letzebuerger Land. The collection of drawings resulting from this collaboration became the diary for Manifesta 2 and was shown during the exhibition.
