We are delighted to invite you to a 3-day event in Palermo, Sicily, on the 16th, 17th of June and the 1st of July 2018.

In the context of Manifesta 12 this collateral event will host a public program with a focus on mobility, migration, political geography and global culture in a local context. We will build a Global Garden in Piazza Magione in Palermo. 

We would like to investigate and discuss issues related to our time: 

How are artists dealing with concepts such as migration, digitalization, geography and mobility or lack of mobility? What role does the image and representation play today? What kind of strategies, narratives and methods can artists and intellectuals deploy in the current age of globalization?

Together with a group of amazing artists and speakers, we will address issues connected to the relationship between people and territories in this phase of globalization.

Our means are speech, performance, video and installation. 

We hope you will join us for a dialogue on our possible futures!
