Cuauhtémoc Medina

Manifesta, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, recently announced the name of the head curator and host city for the ninth edition of the event that will take place in 2012. Cuauhtémoc Medina was chosen to lead the curatorial team and Limburg (Belgium) was selected as the place to present Manifesta 9. The decisions reflect a "policy" of hosting the event in a different location every two years, and in a place removed from the traditional European epicenters of art.
