Turning Dreams & Shifting Harbours
The Kidnapping Europe project was initialized by the artists Christina Clar (Paris, France) and Peter Jap Lim (Berlin, Germany) in 2001. Based on the "Europa Myth" (Zeus kidnapped the phoenician princess Europa and brought her to a continent which now has her name), the project aims to approach the topic of migration and the dreams, hopes and visions of migrants, in particular, from a contemporary perspective. In addition to their own work, which resulted in an installation that made its debut at this year's Los Angeles International art show, Christina and Peter approached a number of people from other disciplines ? e.g. film, graphic design, perfume making) and asked Beau Rivage to put together a music compilation for the project. "Turning Dreams & Shifting Harbours" is the resulting compilation of 16 exclusive musical contributions. Its Belgian release will be celebrated at the event in Brussels. Some of the contributors will play live (partly solo, partly with their bands) and there will also be corresponding installations from Christina Clar and Peter Jap Lim.
