Thinking Europe: The Scenario Book
Contribution: Contribution: A Future after the Future (Markus Miessen and Felix Vogel)
Edited by Barbara Steiner
30 scenarios form the basis of this book, presenting 30 opportunities to consider Europe from the point of view of art. Ten curators from Brussels, Istanbul, London, Łódź, Minsk, Novi Sad, Oslo, San Sebastián, and Taipei were invited to develop three scenarios each, representing ways one might approach the variegated entity of Europe, its heterogeneity and diversity of voices. Art hereby raises its voice in the debate about the lack of an identity in Europe, its financial crisis and its prospects for the future. The curators and the artists they invited deal with the theme of Europe from various perspectives.
