How does Europe breathe?

-
Kunst-Foyer
Culture / Vernissage
german language

The works created in the framework of the eu-art-network symposium “Fluchtpunkt Europa” (Refuge Europe) are directly linked to the play “atem; aus; atmen” (breath; out; breathing) staged at the opening session of the Political Symposium. They contextualise and complement an intensive artistic encounter with the death of 71 refugees – the tragedy of Parndorf that represents without doubt an unexpected turn of events in the so-called refugee crisis. Suddenly, the drama that we had only known from images of capsized boats in the Mediterrenean had arrived in at our Central European doorsteps. With selected works by: Alexey Belavin, Zsolt Ferenczy, Wolfgang Horwath, Markus A. Huber, Klaus Ludwig Kerstinger, Milan Lukác, Iberia Medici, Erich Spindler, Zsófia Sztranyák, Oksana Zmiyevska.
