About the European Pavilion
The European Pavilion was launched in 2020 as a pan-European initiative, placing the question of Europe and its future(s) at the forefront through cultural projects and art commissions. It was born out of our belief that we need cultural spaces that transcend national boundaries to explore and imagine what Europe is and what it can or should become.
The concept of a European Pavilion draws inspiration from World Expos and the Venice Biennale, both of which have influenced its creation. The European Pavilion seeks to constructively challenge the model of national pavilions and the national imaginaries they represent, without seeking to replace them. Instead, it aims to seek alternatives and reinvent the pavilion as an experimental space for formulating new scenarios for Europe through culture.
By embracing this opportunity, curators and cultural entities can shape the European Pavilion’s narrative and contribute to redefining Europe’s future. We look forward to receiving your visionary proposals that will shape the cultural landscape of Europe in 2024 and beyond.
