Manifesta 14 Prishtina
Jul 22 – Oct 30, 2022
Prishtina, Kosovo

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 positive social change through contemporary culture in response to, and in close dialogue with, the social sphere of the Host City and its communities. Manifesta has consistently chosen unexpected host locations that reflect Europe’s ever-changing DNA to shed light on a world defined by changing ethical and aesthetic imperatives. Manifesta, as a recurring event, has transformed itself into a multilayered and inclusive instrument of civic engagement projects.

Manifesta 14 takes place in Prishtina, Kosovo. Manifesta 14 aims to support the citizens of Kosovo in their ambition to reclaim public space and to rewrite the future of their capital as an open-minded metropolis in the Balkans and in Europe through the development of a new cultural institution.

Under the title “It matters what worlds world worlds: how to tell stories otherwise,” Manifesta 14 Prishtina takes up the challenge of exploring new modes of collective storytelling and reclaiming public space. We have created five different tours with Manifesta 14 Prishtina locations that bring together the stories that shaped Prishtina, the memories of those who live there, and the stories that each of the artistic and urban interventions of Manifesta 14 wishes to expand, touch and envision. Taking these tours, you’ll discover the itinerary identified by CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati’s Urban Vision in his call to open public, and private, spaces to the community once again.
