A guide through Manifesta 9

Ni Haifeng, Para-Production, 2012

Manifesta 9: The Deep of the Modern
Few weeks ago I was invited to guide a group of visitors through Manifesta 9. Beside the regular tours with art mediators they had a special concept '4x9 Stories' where people from various disciplines are invited to guide visitors based  on with their own point of view and expertise. Whether it be a sociologist or a musician, a cook or a fashion designer, one of the curators or one of the neighbours of our venue; each tour provides a new perspective on the exhibition.
I have to admit that I was nervous about it because I have never done something like this but Sandrien Wansink, one of the art mediators, helped me through. It was such a great and inspiring day. Manifesta 9 in Genk is really a must-see exhibition. Soon more posts but for now have a look at the pictures for an impression.
