EUROPA IN BEELD, MYTHE & REALITEIT
EUROPES IMAGE, MYTH & REALITY
A new team led by director Maya Meijer-Bergmans organised the five year exhibition, "Europes Image, Myth and Reality". The theme related to the intense focus on the unification of Europe. Well-known sculptors and fresh and upcoming talent from all fifteen member states of the European Union showed their European roots. Classics and contemporary works of art confronted visitors in a playful manner with the question of whether the classical Greek myth on the kings daughter Europe (in the form of a white bull), who was abducted by Zeus can still be seen as a metaphor for the fascinating appeal of attraction and repulsion in the unification process of contemporary Europe. The sub-title, Myth & Reality, encouraged visitors to reflect on the question of whether unity in diversity is unity or diversity. For the first time, a prize was created by The Hague Sculpture and partners. The jury assessed a special selection of five talented contemporary artists from Belgium, the Netherlands, Finland, Luxembourg and France with respect to their special talent to capture the European spirit innovatively and confrontationally. Anton Cotteleer, Remy Jungerman, Piia Ollikka, Bert Theis and Eric Liot were assigned the creation of a special work of art with as theme: Living in Europe / European living.
