In a workshop and following travelling exhibition Europe’s youth faces its anxieties and fears about the future. Our current project „Fearful Visions—Visionary Ideas: Europe’s Youth on the Move“ encourages young people to think about their fears and hopes for the future in times of ﬁnancial crisis, unemployment and climate
change. In cooperation with experts from academia, cultural organizations and curators from Berlin, Madrid and Warsaw students are asked to develop their visions of a comfort zone Europe in a workshop in March 2013. We will present the results of the workshop with videos, photos, and audio points in a mobile exhibition space between August and October 2013 in four European Cities. The project is a
joint-eﬀort of the Museum for European Cultures Berlin, the collaborative research center „Mobilized Cultures“ (University of Potsdam), the Institute of European Ethnology (Humboldt University Berlin), and Open Embassy e. V. For the exhibition we cooperate with JEF Madrid, the youth council of Pinto, the Instytut Innovacji, and the Tea Club Association from Warsaw.
