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

The migration of ideas is the core subject of this project by Slovenian artist collective IRWIN. In a little car, furnished with four seats and a monitor, visitors could drive to other exhibitions in the museum. At the same time, they could become acquainted with the IRWIN members and with other travelling companions who had sent video-letters from the USA during Manifesta 1.
