What does it mean to be a citizen in the European Union? With her art installation Outer Space Transmitter, Mona Schulzek invites you to find your own answers to this question. From these, artist and ham Mona Schulzek creates art images which are sent to a satellite in form of radio waves. From there, they start their journey through the universe, to maybe be found one day as artifacts of this time.
On 12 November, the project is launched during a digital event. Afterwards, together with the artist, the Outer Space Transmitter commences its journey through Europe’s regions, where the parabolic antenna will be displayed in public spaces.
Against this backdrop, the REGIOPARL research project cordially invites you to an evenning event featuring an open discussion. Under the title
„European citizens between region, nation and Europe“
we will be examining the question what it means to be a citizen in the European Union from an academic, an artistic as well as a political perspective.
After short impulses from our speakers, all participants will be invited to share their ideas and contribute to the debate. We would like to offer an opportunity to discuss the future of the EU, the role of the regions and the self-placement of European citizens. Subsequently, the Outer Space Transmitter will be officially launched and the participants will have to opportunity to send their message into outer space for the first time.
