The “Bird & Crown” captured by the eye and camera of Marie Cecile Thijs, now at the 9th Beijing International Art Biennale 2022.
For the first time in any international art biennale, works by artists from the European Union, including painting, photography, collage, video and installations, are brought together in a joint exhibition in one of the four official pavilions of the Beijing International Art Biennale.
. As described by „Creative Europe“, art is a powerful tool that can change the way we think and act. This exhibition is inspired by this broad and powerful concept of art. Could art help us to think and act as European citizens? Could it succeed in defining us with a distinct cultural entity of our own? Could this common exhibition in China help us in this quest for unity? In short, is there such a thing as the „European Spirit“? It is with these questions in mind, and as an experiment, that this exhibition of European art in Beijing was conceived.
