BOX Freiraum, Berlin
“How many Europes are there, and how many should there be?” asks the Hungarian writer Zsófia Bán. Historic events such as the Second World War, the fall of the Berlin Wall, or the war in former Yugoslavia have previously sparked intellectual and artistic turning points in Europe. Today, flight and migration require, as Bán writes, a change of heart and a change of mind.
As If, At Home evokes Europe in its diversity through the perspective of the arts. An exhibition, lectures, and talks collect various voices — personal and abstract, rooted in memory and the present — of artists throughout the continent. Together they build a forum to contemplate the current changes in Europe.
