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

Installation at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

French artist Didier Trenet created this installation in the patio of the museum. A decorative model garden was planted around a garden hose that had been carefully positioned in the space. Eventually, when the hose was taken away, an embroidery of grass beds reminiscent of French Baroque gardens appeared.
