Manifesta 9 shows a different approach from earlier editions. The choice of an extraordinary location has not changed - in this case the large Waterschei mining complex in Genk, Belgium. New is the way contemporary art is accessibly embedded in the cultural heritage of the location, the mining industry. In an interview in Metropolis M no. 3, curator Cuauhtémoc Medina explains the context of the exhibition. The issue also gives a concise history of Manifesta 1 - 9.
