A project by Massimiliano Arosio
The aim of this installation is to represent how the idea of the European Union has changed over the past few years.
So many aspects have been transforming and the founders‘ original idea of the Union is becoming just a distant memory. Europe closing its walls towards immigration, economic crisis and current policies with a nationalist doctrine are just the main examples of this change.
The installation consists of several vintage televisions that show the negotiation and the signing of the Treaty of Maastricht (1992), one of the two treaties forming the constitutional basis of the European Union.
