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

This project by Italian artist Leone Contini was a reflection on the crops sprouting around Italy because of the seeds informally imported by migrant communities. These vegetables known and appreciated by different migrant communities were presented by this project as a means by which to explore a future of cohabitation.
