Palermo, Italy, has been selected as the location of the twelvth iteration of Manifesta, which is set to take place in 2018. Hedwig Fijen, director of Manifesta, and Leoluca Orlando, mayor of the city, announced the news. Said Fijen, “Manifesta 12 will raise questions such as: ‘Who owns the city of Palermo? ‘ and ‘how to claim back the city? ’ The city’s migration problems are symbolic of the far wider crisis situation which the whole of Europe is facing right now.” The previous two iterations of the festival were held in Zurich and St. Petersburg.
