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.

Installation at Frankensteiner Hof

Polish artist Monika Sosnowska installed a labyrinth of built spaces in Frankensteiner Hof in which nine identical rooms were connected through doors. No matter which one of the doors were opened, the same familiar room appeared. Opening a door and entering a room was transformed into a bodily experience that oscillated between disappointed expectations and unease.
