Collecting Europe


Organized in close collaboration with the Goethe-Institut London, Collecting Europe will turn the clock forward to the 41st century. The first exhibition and festival enjoyed great success at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in February 2017 and featured 12 new contemporary art commissions, imagining what Europe might look like 2,000 years from now. The continuation of Collecting Europe within The Future of Europe festival will display four existing works from the first exhibition: 4018 Enacted; YOOROP; EU, 2017 and A Song for Europe. In addition two new works, Calculated Move and Korrekturfahnen [Galley Proof] , featuring live-interventions with the audience, have been specifically commissioned by Schauspiel Stuttgart and Goethe-Institut London for the festival to continue the spirit of Collecting Europe.

Jasleen Kaur
Video Installation

YOOROP is a pseudo-documentary that provokes questions around whose voice history is written in. A construction of European location shoots, borrowed from popular Indian cinema, fabricate a translated image of “Europeaness” from an alternative cultural perspective. With Sharukh Khan as the default protagonist, a future is proposed where The West’s history is written by The East.

Onkar Kular and “Common Initiative”
Live Interventions

4018 Enacted imagines the future of identity, citizenship, borders and territories in the year 4018, asking how data, machine learning, algorithms and artificial intelligence might transform these. The project will be enacted through scripted performances at scheduled times during the festival.

Nina Støttrup Larsen
Live Intervention

Calculated Move is a speculative conversation between a ‘data body’ and a European citizen. The work uses motion capture technology, narrative and video to engage questions of what we should include in our data sets for algorithmic governance. Is aclenched fist more dangerous than a hand that signs a contract? The work consists of installed elements, complemented by live-interventions with the audience during the festival.

Thibaut de Ruyter
Exhibition on Paper

A Song for Europe is an exhibition based on music and poetry. The visitors are invited to examine a poster; 16 tracks are listed here – as are their QR codes – which brings the visitor directly to the internet in order to experience, for example, a sublime live version of Roxy Music’s Song for Europe (1973). The poster – considered the exhibition’s space – is designed by Büro Otto Sauhaus in a close collaboration with the curator.

Remco Torenbosch
Sound Installation

EU, 2017 is an abstract of the final part of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. This iconic composition has been used as a political hymn for numerous historic moments throughout modern history and was officially appropriated, and stripped from vocals, as the European anthem for the European Union in 1985. The decommissioning of the original composition resonates within the socio-political history of Europe, where segregation and diffusion are key.

Stephan Köperl & Sylvia Winkler
Live Interventions

Korrekturfahnen, created specially for the festival, questions the “Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union”, in which EU fundamental rights are written down in a comprehensible form. During the festival the printed constitutional text is modified together with the audience in a discursive and performative process. The aim is not only to improve the particular articles of the Charter, but to add new, emancipatory and utopian phrases to them.

Permanent during the festival The Future of Europe in Foyer Schauspielhaus, Kammertheater and Nord
