The Cultural Canon of Europe


Exhibition ‘The Cultural Canon of Europe’ will offer the viewer a discovery of two modern Europeans, through whom the cultural canon of the continent can be revealed. They are European citizens very different in their ‘content.’ Their large, robust human figures will turn out to hold drawers filled with national treasures, symbols of the sacramental material culture of the European states, thus, identifying the DNA of the European tomorrow.
