INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION MANIFESTA
****************************************************************

Manifesta, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, is initiated and supported by the International Foundation Manifesta (IFM). The International Foundation Manifesta, a non-profit organization with its office in Amsterdam, guarantees the independence, integrity and continuity of Manifesta by developing and maintaining a support structure for all the art professionals involved. It strives to:

  • stimulate Manifesta’s European network as a medium for person-to-person contacts and stimulate the flow of information between all parties.
  • ensure the continuity and maintenance of working contacts between previous, current and future host cities, as a crucial means of maintaining the credibility of the network
  • ensure the efficient use of, and public access to, information gathered from successive editions of Manifesta
  • develop an examplary information resource centre, in addition to servicing the various branches of Manifesta and promoting and stimulating the in-depth research into contemporary art processes
  • ensure the smooth execution of each Manifesta edition and all related events coming under the umbrella of the IFM

The Board of the IFM is composed of experienced experts from the European art world. Basic tasks of the Board include the selection of each host city, advising on the choice of curators and control of the election procedure.
