DOMO DE EŬROPA HISTORIO EN EKZILO

Part of the Festival de Marseille

Thomas Bellinck / Robin

Mucem,
Marseille

For this exhibition in Marseille, the Belgian director explores possible futures for Europe within the troubling context of current events. It is the first international exhibition to evoke the life in the former European Union…

Set in the future, Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo House for European History in Exile) invites you to back travel in time more than 50 years into the past. The destination is the early years of the 21st century, a period that was the crucible for the profond changes that would shape the world to come. It was a strange time, a time when national borders became hazy and when a single currency named the Euro was used, and when the city of Brussels was the capital of the Old Continent instead of Warsaw.

Despite appearances, Thomas Bellinck isn’t a “Eurosceptic”; to the contrary, he is seeking to awake the collective conscience of Europe at a time when nationalist movements are awakening old demons and inciting people to return to identity politics.  So, before it is too late, consider a future whose seeds may be in the midst of being sown before our very eyes…
