Manifesta, the European Nomadic Biennial, will be held from July 22 to October 30, 2022 in Prishtina

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.

In 2022, Manifesta will celebrate its 14 edition in Prishtina, Kosovo between July 22 and October 30, 2022.  

The biennial will offer a 100-day biennial programme of art, performances, events and workshops with the goal of empowering citizens to reclaim public space throughout Prishtina and the region. 

Manifesta 14 Prishtina’s urban vision is conducted by Carlo Ratti Associati founder and MIT professor Carlo Ratti. The urban vision informs how Manifesta 14 will take shape within the local context, but most importantly it is commissioned to develop how the city of Prishtina could be transformed by reclaiming public space by its citizens.

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.
