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

Maurizio Cattelan, IT

Installation at Casino Luxembourg

For Manifesta 2, Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan transported a fragment of Italy to Luxembourg, namely an olive tree and its roots. Through this, Cattelan intended to explore the extraction of a cube of reality and its transference, but also the possibilities given to sculpture thirty years after the Arte Povera movement.
