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.

The British artist Sarah Tripp presented a documentary film that explored the topics of religion, faith and beliefs. The artist embarked on a pilgrimage from one interview to another through various social groups and communities, asking people to answer the central question of the film: "What do you believe in?" The film was based on these interviews in which people shared their thoughts about what they passionately believed in, whether secular or religious.
