Postcards from the Future is a project by three foreign artists who live in Brussels. Similar projects have already been organised in Geneva, Louvain and Metz; now it’s Brussels’ turn to experience this extraordinary vision of a city. This project is an extended network collaboration between major Brussels artistic and cultural institutions, local district sociocultural centres, citizens associations, political decision makers and other actors of civil society.
It all starts with a postcard. On the front is a picture; on the back is a date, a time and a place. If you are in that place at the right time, you will see the picture on the card portrayed before your very eyes. In other words, what you have received is a postcard from the future.
Several scenes have already been played out at various places in Brussels. All of them were organised in cooperation with local residents. On 24th March the European Parliament will be the place in the future. Emanating from members of Brussels’ civil society, this initiative aims at creating a moment of encounter between two different Europes, the Europe of the institutions – symbolised by the European Parliament, and the Europe of the citizens.
From 8th February you all can invite the members of the European Parliament to take part in this scene by sending them a postcard . Ask MEP’s to stand up and hold a minute’s silence during the plenary assembly on 24th March, thereby creating the scene depicted on the invitation.
Curious? Be at the visitors’ balcony in the plenary assembly at 12 o’clock sharp (reservations via mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Will the prediction come true? See the result on 24th March.
