Final Statement Re: Creating Europe
3 Jun 2016

On the last evening of Re:Creating Europe artists, writers, thinkers, politicians and visitors will come together in the Stedelijk Museum for a final meeting. What European future lies ahead? Together with several contributors – from Tom Lanoye and Arnon Grunberg to Dutch secretary of culture Jet Bussemaker – we set out to explore Europe’s culture. Wander with us through the Stedelijk Museum and join us on our search for new cultural forms and commitments.

After three days of new encounters, important debates and inspiring exchanges, this final evening is not a closure such as is customary. It is a new beginning, an interdisciplinary imagination of what our European culture has been, is and, most importantly, could be. This evening forms a starting point for recreating Europe in the future.

Contributors: Tom Lanoye, Arnon Grunberg, Jet Bussemaker, Martijn de Rijk, Propaganda by the People and many others.

Directed by: Jaïr Stranders, Hanna Timmers, Martijn de Rijk, Rosa Asbreuk, Esther Gaarlandt, and others.
