Manifesta 10

Manifesta 10 – The European Biennial of Contemporary Art

2014 marks the twentieth anniversary of Manifesta. In its jubilee edition, Manifesta will reevaluate the past twenty-five years of changing realities, experiences, and transformations brought about by the shifting world order. The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg was selected by the Board of the Manifesta Foundation to host Manifesta 10 because of its critical, intellectual, and historical relationship with East and West Europe: a principle at the core of Manifesta’s own beginnings.

Founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great as her personal art collection, the State Hermitage Museum has been open to the public since 1852, and in 2014 celebrates 250 years of existence. The recently renovated General Staff Building, the new premises for modern and contemporary art at the State Hermitage Museum, will be fully open this year, acting as the main stage for Manifesta 10. Led by Curator Kasper König, Manifesta 10 will expand the artistic exchange made possible by the events of 1989–91. More than 50 leading contemporary artists from Russia and around the world will participate, with a number of artists creating new works specifically for Manifesta 10. The Biennial will be a landmark opportunity to experience and learn more about the geopolitical history of the site and venues, along with various positions within contemporary art, in the company of works of historical excellence held in the Hermitage’s collection.

Education, mediation, and public and parallel programs play an important role in Manifesta 10, in its investigations of the notions and role of contemporary culture in a changing society. Manifesta 10 will reach out to broad publics by offering events and encounters with art outside of the State Hermitage Museum, bringing the exhibition into the city and a step closer towards people’s everyday lives.
