Finding European Dreams - A Project
The art and society project EUROPEAN VISIONS researches the essence of humans. To do this, people are interviewed across all of our 27 EU countries using the EUROPEAN VISIONS-questionnaire.
The questionnaire provides information on the sense of beauty of our EU citizens and their most important experiences. From the answers arise paintings and videos that were created with the help of the questionnaire by these people of different backgrounds! Are you curious? Take part too – it’s worth it!
A traveling exhibition across Europe unites our society about their visions and their individual sense of beauty – created by people from different social backgrounds from all EU member states!
Stations of the traveling exhibition will be cities and municipalities – national and European – and the European Parliament in Brussels.
Award-winning author Robert Menasse also supports the project. He wrote the European novel “The Capital” and was awarded the German Book Prize.
EUROPEAN VISIONS received the KWW grant from the Künstlerdorf Schöppingen Foundation.
All EU citizens are invited to participate in the search for beauty!

The 8 questions are answered quickly and you don’t have to be an art expert. But be careful! It gets intense and requires reflection. You can participate anonymously.

EUROPEAN VISIONS can serve as a bridge to other worlds of imagination. And all people who believe in a Europe of togetherness and not of the against each other.
In a Europe where racism, discrimination and exclusion have no chance!

Why support this project?
Because EUROPEAN VISIONS is a project that unites us Europeans. About the sense of beauty and our individual and most significant experiences.
