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

Jordi Colomer worked as a set designer before he became an artist and was educated as an architect and art historian, experiences that still influence his work today. Using props and treating land- and cityscapes as scenery, he creates “a kind of expanded theater,” in which the visitors are confronted with their own roles as participants or spectators. Through video works as well as sculptural and performative interventions, he deals with urbanity and social spaces.
