'Manisensations' was a night of performative event ritualisation and part of a research project of artists Voin de Voin and Stephanie Ballantine.

Manifestation, the physical formulation of an idea.
Sensation, the internal, a phenomenology that appears before language.

Manisensation – a formulated manifesto of ideas explored internally and implemented externally, the building of a ’self-sitution‘ (institution of the self) that is in itself a base for communication.

In search of a lost sensation, they offer an open platform, a speaker’s corner where messages can be heard. The platform is offered as a sacred space allowing statements regardless of affiliations, social standing, stratifications, or social correctness. They focus on the notion of identity as a political construct without reflecting traditional anarchist approaches. They ask for voluntary participation to contribute to the creation of a self governed institution, imagining alternative art platforms.
