A funny cartoon of diverse stereotypes and prejudices of Europe by Aleix Saló

What the United States thinks of Europe - and what Europeans think of each other in the form of a funny, stereotypical and slightly inappropriate video!

This is a European Flag proposal from 2002 created by Rem Koolhaas. I like the idea of a flag that combines all flags of the EU members. In that way it represents the unity of the EU while maintaining the individual identity of the countries. Plus, new members can easily be added to the flag. However, the flag was never officially adopted by the EU. Maybe, because of the economic connotation of the barcode symbol.

Fictional flag invented by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas in Was never adopted as a flag, so not an official symbol. Was however used as a logo of the Austrian EU presidency a few years ago.

There are some ornaments from early medieval times in Armenia looking quite similar to some from Irland or Crotia... Often I asked Armenians whether they feel european or non-european. One told me: It's like living on the crossroads...

In Humanity House in The Hague (NL) I had a memorable experience of Europe. In a theatric exhibition I was put in the role of a refugee. There was a contrasting room, with familiar Ikea furniture and a couch in front of a tv that shows other realities. Images of people going through the most cruel conditions to get on the 'good side' of the border, makes the comforts of home almost surreal. This picture was taken from a tile in a room with a mirror that literally makes you feel invisible.

I grow up near the iron curtain - a border mainly splitting up Europe. Some years ago I went on a new bicycle road crossing the Bavarian-Czech border - now there is only a sign left. And you follow some former border streets running through a former forbidden area - now it is free to pass without any restrictions or controls :)  And I like to discover those eastern european countries which were only blank spots on the map when I went to school.

Monument of immigrants in New Orleans, "dedicated to the courageous men and women who left their homeland seeking freedom, oppurtunity and a better life in a new country." European people looking for a better life - nowadays they would be called "Wirtschaftsflüchtlinge" (economic migrants), something quite wicked to German (and European) politicians. Remembers me, Europe often been a place of Emigration - we should remember this more often.

It is a strange phenomenon: streets and places named with "europe" are seldom crowded and located in the center. Mostly they are parking areas, crossings or much-used streets in the outskirts - not really a place you like to spend some time there...
