Finding European Dreams - A Project
The social- and art-project EUROPEAN VISIONS researches the dreams and visions of Europeans. To do this, 28 professions are interviewed across our 28 EU countries using the European Visions questionnaire. Paintings, cinematic documents and study-related infographics will present the results in a traveling exhibition.
This artistically playful study of the Europeans’ sense of beauty explores our basic human needs as well as cultural differences – the beauty that lies in the difference and in the commonality of the Europeans. EUROPEAN VISIONS focuses on what is really important for people.
A traveling exhibition across Europe unites our society about their visions and their individual sense of the beautiful – created by people of all social classes 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. The painting, which is based on his statements in the questionnaire, will be part of the exhibition.
EUROPEAN VISIONS received the KWW grant from the Künstlerdorf Schöppingen Foundation.
