TRANSEUROPA - Walk the Talk
Wednesday, July 26, 2017, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
With Dr. Willem Flinterman (Cultural historian, Arabist, alumnus of the Eurasian Empires Research Group, University Leiden and Amsterdam, involved as organizer in Pulse of Europe, Berlin)
and M. Walid Nakschbandi (Afghan-German journalist, jurist and political expert, AVE Publishing, Berlin/Düsseldorf)
Due to current political events, the concept of Europe as a union is being put to the test. Through an artistic investigation of the subject of the map, the installation by Ce Jian & Yuzheng Cheng questions the status of the European Union and its individual member states in relation to domestic and foreign policy. What is the significance of the visual representation of countries, borders, routes of migration in the media from a political, ideological perspective?
The two specialists from different fields will draw on their scientific backgrounds to discuss the themes of the exhibition in dialogue with the artists and the audience. The talk format “Walk the Talk” is moderated by the two curators Hannah Beck-Mannagetta and Lena Fließbach.
Following the talk we have reserved a restaurant table at 9 pm. Please RSVP to join us for Walk the Talk Dinner to: lenafliessbach(at)gmail.com and hannahbeckmannagetta(at)gmail.com
