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.

Emre Hüner, TR

A Little Larger Than the Entire Universe is a development of the Turkish artist Emre Hüner’s 2011 project Quixotic, which drew on the history of Fordlandia, the prefabricated industrial town founded by Henry Ford in 1928 in the Amazon rainforest to extract rubber for tyres. This enterprise failed as neither the native workers nor the jungle conformed to the principles of Fordism. Hüner, with this installation, questions how we deal with modernity and industry.
