Established in 1996, Manifesta, with head quarter in the Netherlands, is a moving European contemporary art biennial. The edition of 2024 will take place in the city of Barcelona and ten Metropolitan cities in Catalonia, Spain.
Manifesta is looking for architects, artists, scientists, ecologists, designers, and educators, either individuals, collectives, institutions, or associations, who are keen to bring exceptional projects to exceptional venues. The main topic of this year’s edition is on innovative ideas to face the socio-ecological transition. Focus areas include urban development, decolonisation to social inclusion and the climate transition that can create a positive impact for local communities.
