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.

Projects in public space

Spanish artist Lara Almarcegui, accompanied by a local guide, identified a neglected plot of land and arranged with the city of Genk that this terrain would remain undeveloped and untouched for ten years to come. This piece of land, where nature would be allowed to take its course, would remain accessible to visitors.
