How European is Europe? In Rotterdam, the 2001 Cultural Capital of Europe, curator Salah Hassan posed this question to 18 international artists. Yinka Shonibare, Jimmie Durham, Willem Boshoff, Heri Dono, Coco Fusco, Ni Haifeng, Ken Lum, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, and Keith Piper are just a few of the artists whose non-European perspective has been brought to bear on the contradictions between the official story of Europe and its everyday reality, where heterogeneity, hybridity, and cultural influences mutually determine the norm. In addition to documenting the works created especially for this project, Unpacking Europe also provides essays by leading critics that place the exhibition’s theme in a broader context.
