Throughout its 25-year history, Manifesta has created extensive pre-biennial research into the fabric of the local Host Cities in order to create sustainable and relevant interdisciplinary projects. This multifaceted bottom-up investigation takes the form of an urban vision, citizen consultations, the mapping out of local communities as well as an array of expectation workshops with local opinion leaders in order to understand how the Host City might serve as a prototype for the world to come.

Manifesta 14’s objective is therefore to produce sustainable projects with a long-term legacy, co-created with the local infrastructure, as well as contemporary art interventions across the city of Prishtina.
