Faces of Europe, a video art and light installation with music. To conclude Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of 2020, the video art projection FACES OF EUROPE, a cultural-political project initiated by Düsseldorf and Berlin-based photographer Carsten Sander, will come to life in the San Silvestro Square in Rome for the Italian and European public. In addition, 15 shining steles with portraits invite people to walk across the square in the open air. German photo artist Carsten Sander has embarked on an extraordinary journey through all 27 EU Member States. His mission is to take one thousand portraits of Europeans from different ethnic and social backgrounds, rich and poor, young and old. He depicts celebrities, athletes, politicians, chance encounters on the street, side by side, all on equal terms. 1000 faces of the European Union – an impressive demonstration of European sentiment and a tribute to peaceful coexistence, tolerance and shared values.
