Europa Neurotisch

Giving one answer to “What is Europe?” is complicated; at first it’s a  
continent but also a political and economical union of the more  
prosperous countries residing in the continent.
Today one could argue that Europe as a word would direct more to the  
European Union than to the continent itself, and therefore would place  
itself more into the context of one economic and political unit.
But although this process takes place in the light of democracy, does  
it reflect it’s inhabitants unity? Is there a unity at all?
Within this show we would like to address these questions in an almost  
informal way, the show could be seen as sort of a roadmovie; sights,  
sounds, ideas make up a fabric that as a whole could be described as  

The show is not intended as a demystifying collection of answers  
regarding the sole identity of Europe, but more as an eclectic look at  
the whole concept of Europe.
Therefore the type of works we are looking can deal with micro or  
macro Europe; they can be political, personal, social, as long as the  
work has a tie to europe we are interested.
A catalogue will be made of all the works presented in the show wich  
afterwards will be mailed to all participants in the show.

This show will be the starting point of a series of shows dealing in  
some way with Europe, a second show is planned in the second half of  

This call is open to individual artists, as well as collectives and  
artist run spaces.
There is no restriction to size or material, however we have no  
funding for transportation.
