Manifesta è un evento Biennale che si svolge da 22 anni in Europa, quest’anno a Zurigo.



La sede più importante delle mostre è al Löwenbräukunst Limmatstrasse Zurich, che ospita parecchie mostre, performance art, gallerie di foto e video.

In particolare, un padiglione è stato dedicato al rapporto tra arte e tecnologia per sottolineare come in alcuni ambiti non ci sia più bisogno di un artista umano per fare arte, portando, tra vari esempi, le immagini surreali prodotte da Deep Dream di Google. Andy Warhol docet?


Manifesta, the 22-year-old biannual gathering for modern art (arguably the most important event of its kind in Europe), takes place this year in Zurich, Switzerland, from the 11.06.2016 until the 18.09.2016. Along with countless expositions and galleries scattered around town, a headquarters was established at the Löwenbräukunst contemporary art museum in LImmatstrasse, which, for the event, opened all of its spaces to worldwide famous painters, photographers and performance artists.

In particular, an area was dedicated to the somewhat controversial relationship between art and technology, emphasizing how technology is replacing human workforce even in art. For instance, a Google’s Deep Dream A.I.’s rendering of a daily scene (people doing groceries in a supermarket) is presented on a wide screen.
