[Nettime-bold] PRESS RELEASE/


On June 23rd 2000, Manifesta 3 opened in Ljubljana, Slovenia and according
to the program will span the tenure of time through September 22, 2000. 
The direct inference is that the event exists and/or is being hosted
'someplace' within a specific plane of time. But can Manifesta be anyplace,

Manifesta is an ongoing experiment.  It travels, it is multi-curatorial and
it explores emerging voices in the contemporary visual practice.  But is it
innovative in terms of display?  Even under the aforementioned experimental
conditions, a show may arise that is even more local, more object-oriented,
more compromise-driven than before.  To avoid such regression, Virtual
Manifesta has been revealed on the Internet. The website aspires to
transcend individual authorship and material work realized in confined
physical spaces.  It avoids representation of regions and disciplines.  It
offers creative environments that are linked to others via unpredictable
trajectories.  It investigates the virtual.  It is a Virtual Manifesta.
