From June – November 2018 the city of Palermo hosts the European Nomadic Biennial Manifesta12. Titled “The Planetary Garden. Cultivating Coexistence” the edition´s “main ambition is to work in a truly interdisciplinary way with local communities in order to rethink the basic architectural, urban, economic, social and cultural structures of the city.”(1) The geographical and cultural position of the city at the crossroads of three continents makes it an ideal location to investigate some of today’s most urgent questions and explore possible futures.
