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.

Economic bubbles based on speculative real-estate investment are popping up all over the world. Artists breathe the same late- Capitalist air full of flashy advertising teaching people how to desire lifestyles. But what happens when the economy which dictates the circumstances of their professional lives begins to encroach on their private life and personal welfare? "A house is not a home," but what constitutes a home when one is challenged to survive professionally, emotionally, and physically all at once? The elements of this work are a property advertisement with lifestyle undertones, an artist as an evicted, homeless man, and technology that will keep us connected - three sides of one economy of lust.
