130 artists, 250 artworks, 30 new productions, 30 documentary films about the new productions, a guild of artists, a swimming pavillon with its own pool and 38 parallel events: It all adds up to Manifesta 11 in Zurich. Here is an overview of what you can look forward to this summer. We can’t wait to see you!
What People Do for Money: Some Joint Ventures – under this title, 30 international artists have joined forces with their Zurich hosts from diverse professions to produce new artworks. Each new production will be presented in three ways: once in a satellite venue, once in either Löwenbräukunst or Helmhaus and once as a film screened at the Pavillon of Reflections.

The Historical Exhibition: Sites Under Construction brings together selected historical and contemporary positions to explore how work can be the subject of investigation and artistic reflection. The exhibition is divided into eleven theme chambers and is being presented in the Löwenbräukunst and the Helmhaus.

The Pavillon of Reflections, the floating platform docked Bellevue is the architectural icon of Manifesta 11, offering space for exchange and reflection. This is where the films about the newly created artworks will be screened. During the day, the Pavillon of Reflections will operate like one of Zurich’s traditional
open-air swimming areas

At Cabaret der Künstler – Zunfthaus Voltaire, artists and people from other professions will perform together on the stage. Anyone with the courage to go on stage before the guild audience and perform will automatically become a member of the newly founded guild of artists.

The Parallel Events offer a window into local and regional cultural life, presented in the international context of Manifesta 11. The Parallel Events include projects from the visual arts, performance, video, photography, dance, theatre, music and design.
