is a pan-European event, which aims to be open, fresh and 'alternative'.
Through publications, seminars, workshops and a massive exhibition
it will serve as a stimulus to the free exchange of people, ideas
and works of art.
The aims of Manifesta:
Manifesta will encourage reflection on a wide range of cultural,
philosophical, political, historical and social issues relating
to contemporary art in Europe.
Through its charter and its organisational structure it will maintain
the maximum independence from political, commercial and sectarian
Its Committee of Honour, International Board, Advisory Board and
National Committee guarantee both independence and organisational
Independent curatorial teams will be appointed for specific projects
and fixed terms of office only. This means that successive editions
of Manifesta´s biennial exhibition of young and emerging artists
will vary in curatorial and thematic approach.
The European Art Manifestation Foundation which organises Manifesta
will work with all organisations and individuals willing to collaborate
without prejudice or precondition, but will question established
notions (aesthetic or otherwise).
It will have no part in organising prizes or competitions or supporting
national rivalries. Manifesta aims to transgress the existing regional,
social, linguistic and economic barriers in Europe.
It will give wider currency to fringe areas of European culture
and place the artist at the heart of a continuing dialogue with
curators, critics and a wider public. In this way, and through demonstrating
the pluralism of contemporary art and its openness to contemporary
realities, Manifesta will exemplify the important role that young
artists can play in helping to make the new Europe a more exciting
and culturally diverse place in which to live.
Statement of the Advisory Board of MANIFESTA, Summer 1994.
The inner dynamics of Manifesta:
Manifesta is not only an art show. The exhibition MANIFESTA I in
Rotterdam in the summer of 1996, will be the climax to an intensive
dialogue about new developments in the visual arts and will represent
the first fruit of a new type of collaboration. Manifesta is a biennial
event. It must have the ability to reinvent itself for each new
edition. Subsequent events will takeplace in different regions of
Europe. However, it is intended that a permanent administrative
base for Manifesta should be established in the Netherlands, as
a means of ensuring organisational continuity. For the necessary
flow of information we use the most effective means of modern communication:
Electronic Mail, access to the Internet and Multimedia data carriers
such as CD-ROM.
