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

Installation at Musée national d'histoire et d'art

French Bosnian artist Bojan Šarčević deliberately chose to work in a room of the museum that was not used as an exhibition space. He introduced several minimal interventions that completely changed the room: a false wall and ceiling and painted walls, which modified the room’s volume and color. He then filled all the cracks of the room with toilet paper, sealing it.
