Manifesta 11 – Parallel Events in Zurich, 11 Jun 2016 — 18 Sep 2016

Manifesta 11 – Parallel Events in Zurich

Each edition of Manifesta is accompanied by Parallel Events. Their aim is to highlight various aspects of the local and regional art scenes and to create a dialogue between them and the main exhibition.
The overall co-ordination and realisation of the selected projects is organised by the coordinator of the Parallel Events, Urs Steiner.
The art projects covered by the Parallel Events are integrated into the communication strategy for the overall programme of Manifesta 11. In August 2015, following a public call for proposals, Manifesta 11 received more than 300 applications, from all artistic disciplines and forms of expression, to participate in the programme of Parallel Events. The central premise of the call for proposals was that the individual projects address the subject matter of the motto of Manifesta 11 «What People Do For Money». A jury, composed of Hedwig Fijen (Director M11), Christian Jankowski (Curator M11), Natalia Huser (General Coordinator M11), Barbara Basting (Director Visual Arts City of Zurich), Anna Bürgi (Director of Dance City of Zurich) and Tobias Brenk (Dramatic Advisor for Theatre and Dance, Kaserne Basel, Member of the Dance Commission of the City of Zurich), selected the projects, which will be realised alongside Manifesta 11 in the summer of 2016.
