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.

For Pavilion II, Within Limits 1921 - 1995 Banu Cennetoglu collaborated with the London-based conceptual artist Shiri Zinn. One of Zinn's limited edition, glass pieces has been customised to become a cremation urn carrying a sample of dust collected from the exhibition site in the former artillery barracks in Murcia. This glass object can then exist as a monument to the historic functions of the site, to reflect on a legacy of authority, pleasure and the interdependency of power. It is an ode to impotence versus monumentalism.
