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 15 Barcelona will be taking place in Barcelona and 11 surrounding metropolitan cities

Peter Land, DK

Video installation at C.P.C.A.

In the basement of the C.P.C.A. Danish artist Peter Land presented his video installation in two parts. In one part, a film featured a man (the artist himself) who repeatedly falls down stairs. The continuous repetition made the act absurd, meaningless and even sad, as it represented continuous failure. In the other part, a starry sky appears in a seemingly immobile long-term temporality.
