EUROPEAN VISIONS - Humans behind Europe
The aim of this art project is to perceive Europeans as individuals and to hear voices of different social backgrounds from all Member States. By interviewing people across the 27 EU countries through the EUROPEAN VISIONS questionnaire, the project aims to promote intercultural understanding within the European community. The positions of the people of different backgrounds are seen and heard through a multimedia travelling exhibition.
At EUROPEAN VISIONS you are the designer of art, life and society! Contribute with your positive visions to the development of a society that offers hope for a more beautiful Europe!
Every European is asked to take part in the survey! If you also take part as the first representative of your profession➡️ , you can be part of the touring exhibition EUROPEAN VISIONS! You will also receive a hand-signed art print of your work as a thank you. The questions are intense but quickly answered. You don’t have to be an art expert and can participate anonymously.
In the first part of the questionnaire, you design your own painting, which is then put into practice.
In the second part of the survey, you will share your situation as an individual and citizen of your country as well as your wishes regarding personal and social life via video message using a given guide.
With your help, EUROPEAN VISIONS can serve as a bridge to other imaginations. It is for all people who believe in a Europe of coexistence and not of against each other.
To a Europe where racism, discrimination and exclusion have no chance!
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!
