Manifesta 5 : AICA Round Table – Donostia-San Sebastian, 11 June 2004

An Exhibition in the City, for the City ?

As announced in the press release, the two curators of Manifesta 5, Massimiliano Gioni and Marta Kuzma, have chosen to focus on the notion of the « City as Territory », and to use it as a « catalytic trigger to launch the formulation of (this) project ». The participants in this international Round Table will offer their fresh reactions to Manifesta 5, at the end of the special viewing for press and professionals. They will discuss the work on show and consider the extent to which the exhibition, as a whole, matches up to the curators’ and organisers’ ambitions. In discussion with the public, they will also try to evaluate the likely impact of the event on local and international audiences.

The Round Table will take place from 16.00 to 18.00 hours at Koldo Mitxelena, and is open to everybody.
