What is Manifesta

Manifesta, the European Nomadic Biennial, changes location every two years. Founded in the early 1990s, Manifesta rethinks the relation between culture and civic society, investigating and instigating an eco-social transition through contemporary culture in response to, and in close dialogue with, the social sphere of the Host City and its communities.

About Manifesta 15 Barcelona

Manifesta 15 in Barcelona has been invited to explore pressing public debates, based around the topics of the democratisation of public life; the defence of public space in the face of privatisation; the need to combine social progress with environmental challenges; fragility in terms of housing, the movement of people, capital, data and economic as well as ecological crises.

Manifesta 15 Barcelona Clusters

Spanning across over 3000 km2, the 15th edition of Manifesta is set to bring fresh perspectives to Barcelona and the wider metropolitan region. Each of the 12 cities of the biennial will be grouped into one of three “clusters”, which will be linked to an overarching theme and geographical location. This will be the foundation of the biennial programme for Manifesta 15 Barcelona in 2024.

The Manifesta 15 clusters bring together projects at multiple venues in multiple cities around the three leading themes of the biennial: Balancing Conflicts, Cure and Care and Imagining Futures. The journey of each cluster commences at an extraordinary historical venue which links to its broader theme.

Balancing Conflicts: Cornellà de Llobregat, El Prat de Llobregat, L’Hospitalitet de Llobregat.

Cure and Care: Granollers, Sabadell, Sant Cugat de Vallès, Terrassa.

Imagining Futures: Badalona, Mataró, Sant Adrià de Besòs, Santa Coloma de Gramenet.

An artistic representative from each of these cities will form part of the Artistic Team of Manifesta 15 Barcelona; a team which will help form the programme for next year’s biennial.

In addition to the array of venues per metropolitan city, each city will also host a special Focus Week spanning across the 12-week biennial period. The Focus Week will celebrate the local cultural wealth of each city and will include a specific public programme commissioned for Manifesta 15.
