Europe, are we dancing on a volcano again? Are renewed nationalism, xenophobia, the distrust of politics and democracy, the arrival of refugees, and economic insecurity preparing us for a terrible meltdown? It is well possible. It should give us hope for this project, since the best art is produced on the verge of despair. This book chronicles the creation of 'The Painted Bird', a colossal, collaborative mural painting created in Marres, House for Contemporary Culture, in Maastricht. Made by 19 artists, the painting will cover the entire interior of Marres, with beautiful and frightening impressions of Europe.
