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 C.P.C.A

Through her installation, Slovenian artist Apolonija Sustersic explored the effects of the C.P.C.A building on the neighbouring area. In this installation there was an emphasis on the changing identity of the building as, throughout its history it has been used as a fruit and vegetable store, a carpentry and eventually as exhibition space.
