The seventh edition of Manifesta was curated as a collaborative effort by three teams, consisting of Adam Budak, Anselm Franke / Hila Peleg, and artist collective Raqs Media Collective in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy. As part of the biennial, a major group exhibition at the Palazzo delle Poste in Trento included Roee Rosen’s work The Confessions of Roee Rosen (2007–08), a grouping of three short videos, and an hour-long feature. The work opens with the artist announcing that he is about to die. His "confessions" are delivered by three surrogates—all female foreign workers residing in Israel, who deliver the monologues in Hebrew, a language they do not speak. Their monologues are based on Rosen’s life but are simultaneously plausible as statements they may make themselves. Two series of Rosen’s paintings, Martyr Paintings and Frosted Self-Portraits, were also on display.
