TOPICALITY : EUROP’ART PUZZLE
« My country is a sign » : hundreds of squares representing the countries take place in a puzzle via the internet. Each new square sent finds an equivalent in the other countries. They are as much indicative signals, kaleidoscopic vision of the national identities, convergent or divergent signs declined in multiple equivalences. These representations, in successive « mirrors » when reunited create a cultural ID where decline customs, history, arts, european techniques and civilisations. The Estonian, Lithuanian, Spanish, Czech and French students « draw the portrait », « the cliche » of their identity.
The book « Europ’art puzzle » has been presented during the 14th edition of the triennale of Editing for the youth of Tallinn, galery of the kids of Kullo, at Tallinn, in October 2007.
