€urovisions, a live cinema performance about migrants chasing a European dream.
€urovisions, a new show by European Souvenirs, is about the way the people who come to Europe chasing the European dream, are portrayed in our media.“It isn’t cinema, a concert or a live broadcast. This sum of many parts is quite incomprehensible until you find yourself in front of it.” – Spanish online newspaper El Diario about the €urovisions premiere.

We see their pictures on the news, illustrating rhetorics about  the political and economical causes and pre-assumed effects of migration – but what are their names? Why are they here? What are their own personal stories? And why don’t the media bother to report on people’s dreams? Once, we were all migrants.

€urovisions takes you on a trip in Europe and the homelands of newcomers: Travelling, migrants, nomads, tourists and souvenirs are guiding you through time and history.

€urovisions remixes live cinema and documentary techniques (multiscreen, live music, audiovisual actionism, sampling and cut-ups) into an audiovisual performance.

€urovisions is the second live cinema performance by an international collective of young artists from different European countries: Farah Rahman (the Netherlands), Karol Rakowski (Poland), Noriko Okaku (UK) and Malaventura (Spain). €urovisions is produced in collaboration with Chris Allen and Tim Cowie of the Light Surgeons, and coordinated by ZEMOS98 collective.

€urovisions is part of Remapping Europe – a Remix Project, an investigative artistic project by Doc Next Network with activities that stem from one underlying principle: re-mixing of media as a method to re-view, re-investigate and re-consider prevailing imagery of migrants in European societies. €urovisions is partly drawing on the material generated in the Remapping Europe workshops.
