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

Video installation exhibited at Museo San Telmo

This project restaged Joseph Beuys’s legendary attempts to teach art to a dead hare. In this video by German artist John Bock the hare is alive and runs around a living room filled with minuscule sculptures and intricate structures. The video was accompanied by a live piano performance by Bara, whose improvised electronic soundtrack reflected the underlying rhythm of the video.
