What is Europe?



What
is Europa?


Posters
from a Continent


 


Europe is a word we regularly and confidently refer to. But
how many of us stop for a moment and ask what Europe actually is? That
is what The Danish Poster Museum is doing in the exhibition, What Is Europe? The
poster is a powerful medium and always tendentious, reaching out, as it does, for
an audience to communicate something very specific. In posters we find the
sense of self of the individual countries or of groups within them, elucidated
in a crystallised form. Overall, the posters provide a take on the history of
European mentality.


The exhibition can be seen throughout 2017.
