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

Alicia Framis, NL

Performance at Casino Luxembourg, public spaces and hotel

In her performance, Spanish/Dutch artist Alicia Framis invited the visitors to sit next to her, have tea and chat. In her conversation, she offered them to be their “dreamkeeper” : to guard over their dreams and to talk to them before they fall asleep in their houses or hotel rooms. Through watching over a stranger's intimate moments, Framis shifted the boundaries of anonymity.
