The title refers to a changing Europe, with its blue flag and its multiplying yellow stars. In times of free trade after World War 2 in western Europe and after the economic transformation due to Perestroika in eastern Europe, the banana became a metaphor for increasing economic prosperity. Questions of identity, economy, judical systems and tense relationships in politics and the cultural world are to be artistically dealt with.

The artistic work takes the place of the banana. Here, the banana box "transports" the idea of, as well as being the real packaging and means of transport for the art piece. The banana box will also be a base in the exhibition.

To the history of the Panzerhalle:
The Panzerhalle is a part of a former military barracks, which was built in the early 30's during the Weimar Republic, expanded during the Nazi period, used after the 2nd World War as a NVA border-controll barracks for the GDR, used shortly by the German army after the German re-unification and since 1992 is managed by the State Development Association and the Berlin Home Building Association GEWOBAG.
At the south-east end of the area is the Atelierhaus Panzerhalle, which in 1995 founded and funded from the state of Brandenburg and was initated as an art pilot project to promote artistic exchange in the region. Today 21 artists from Berlin and Brandenburg are working in the Panzerhalle. With the support of its art society the Atelierhaus organizes international exhibitions, symposiums and artists exchange with catalogues such as FOOTSTEPS, symposium and exhibition with Scottish artists, and in 2000 the symposium MEMORY AND VISIONS, an Isreal / German art exchange with a concluding exhibition, in 2001 the exhibition "TRAUTES HEIM" and in 2002 "SCULPTURE PURE" and "WOMEN IN ARMS".
