The awkward question: Is Eastern Europe really accounted as European ‘added value’? Or is our currently ‘extended Europe’ fatally schizothymic? Do the Eastern European newcomers to the Union remain disavowed migrants at the banquet edge of Western Europe? Where does the threshold of Fortress Europe actually begin, once again?

Seven Eastern European artists have been convened as diagnosticians and researchers to explore these questions in the art exhibition Encounters in Relational Geography – Dust, Ashes, Residua.
