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.

It has been over a century since Filippo Marinetti set out the Futurist manifesto. Aluminium by British artist Graham Harwood consisted of a Futurist graphic novel about the social history of aluminum and of the Ex Alumix space, taking the Futurist logic of the 20th century and turning it into a comic.
