Manifesta 11: What People Do for Money

What People Do for Money is published on the occasion of the 11th edition of Manifesta, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art. Curated by artist Christian Jankowski, the biennial permeates the social fabric of Zurich by initiating collaborative projects between artists and citizens from different worlds of work. The catalogue features over thirty of these joint ventures-along with illustrations of the thematic exhibition, documentation of the Pavillon of Reflections on Lake Zurich, and coverage of the participatory artists' guild at Cabaret Voltaire.

Including commentaries from the artists' collaborators, stills from the film programme, sociological research, and new literary texts, it presents a multifaceted portrait of Zurich-one which by generating and gauging discussions serves to contextualise the Swiss capital within Europe today. With contributions from Franco Berardi, Harald Falckenberg, Hedwig Fijen, Sarah Schilliger, Mikhail Shishkin, and Jakob Tanner, among others.
