nEUROsis is the new group show that I am participating in and takes place in Limassol, Cyprus. The exhibition deals with issues related to the contemporary socio-economic upheavals.

“The global financial crisis of the past eight years is heavily impacting most European Mediterranean countries, destabilising not only the symbolic structures of Europe expressed in its initial agreements as unity, stability and equality but also the idea of what the EU is and what it could or should be. There is an observable division within Europe, not only between the Balkan countries and the west but also between north and south, where so called equality amongst nations is resulting in policy decisions which could be argued, favour industrialised members and do not take into account the administrative, financial and specific cultural features of individual European member states. These divides and the contemporary political and theoretical debates around them, form the context for this project, nEUROsis takes a critical look, through art that reflects politically on its own social relevance and engagement at the contradicting values of the EU.”
