The 15th edition of Manifesta will take place in Barcelona in 2024
Manifesta’s Board has selected the City of Barcelona and ten Metropolitan cities in Catalonia, Spain as host cities for the 15th edition of the biennial, taking place in 2024.
The Mediterranean vocation that has characterized the themes of the exhibition in the last few years continues with Barcelona, after the 2018 edition held in Palermo, the one just ended in Marseille and the next one to be held in 2022 in Pristina, Kosovo. Manifesta also anticipated that a German city will host the 16th edition of the biennial to be held in 2026
“This experimental process looks to make Barcelona a laboratory for the creative design of artistic prototypes that drive a new cultural institutionalism. It seeks to explore a structural overhaul of the relationship between contemporary arts and territorial and community contexts, the systematic incorporation of arts in educational settings that promotes critical thinking and imagination, the democratization of the governance of cultural institutions themselves and the inclusion of artists into productive ecosystems outside the art world.” Quote from Barcelona’s bid
