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

Installation at Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg

This installation by Estonian artist Eriks Bozis consisted of light boxes with photographs depicting decorative details of the rooms of the Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg. The photographs showed the size of the patterns either enlarged or reduced. This installation that communicated with the surrounding space served as a reflection on perception and reality.
