De Man in Europe


Assaults on European territory, closing borders and refugees stuffed in trains. There is a pressure on European society that we cannot deny anymore.

The developments that our continent is dealing with, are at the base of De Man in Europe. For this solo-performance the Belgian artist Lucas De Man travelled through Europe, visiting 17 cities in 8 countries and conducting interviews with people that are rooting for change and are all working on remodeling the society that they live in.

Lucas spoke with historians about some of Europe’s great historic visionaries such as Jheronimus Bosch, Erasmus, Thomas More and Luther as well as with contemporary creators: artists, creative minds and socially creative people in a wide sense.

Lucas takes you with him on his journey and through Europe’s history.
