MARCH 2019.

ZIMMERTHEATER, TÜBINGEN, GERMANY

If a historian in the future would have to guess the condition of the EU based on articles and news from 2018, probably the prognosis would not be very optimistic.

Public discourse on the EU has been focusing on crises, conflicts and escape scenarios, EU-scepticism is on the rise, and decision making processes are determined by the members’ short-term interests rather than common visions of the community.

Is the Europe brand really a bunch of empty slogans, or is the problem with the declining quality of  EU’s PR? And what should we do next: is it cosmetic intervention, facelift, or reanimation that is needed?

What happened to the European ideology?

Zimmertheater Tübingen is organising an international conference along this issue, entitled  “European Freak’s Con”, and the team of STEREO AKT joins this project by creating a participative performance on the spot, based on the experiences, questions and dilemmas raised by the conference.
