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

Video installation at Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg

This installation by American artist Sarah Sze was composed of small herds and heaps of objects as well as a video footage depicting groups of people. These people, performing mundane acts were filmed from above and projected in such a small scale that obliged the viewer to look down on them.
