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

GROUP-THINK was a project by Danish artist Stine Marie Jacobsen that sought to expand the current formal education programme at schools by implementing training in nonviolent civil protest, first aid, and collective intelligence skills. Working in schools in Marseille the artist introduced a series of conceptual and physical exercises that fostered the students’ capacity to act in solidarity and to take collective action for global justice.
