Manifesta 9, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, will take place from June 2, 2012 in the former Waterschei coal-mining complex in city of Genk, in Limburg in Belgium, under the direction of curator Cuauhtémoc Medina and associate curators Dawn Ades and Katerina Gregos.The Deep of the Modern intends to create a complex dialogue between different layers of art and history. Its point of departure is the geographical location itself—the former coal-mining region of the Campine in north-eastern Belgium as a locus for diverse issues, both imaginary and ecological, aligned to industrial capitalism as a global phenomenon.
