europalia art2gether: Debate Article 2 (EN)

29 05 2024 18:00 20:00

The opening night of europalia art2gether at WIELS will be dedicated to debate and statements about Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union. Various experts and artists will discuss the future of European values and standards.

The rights and freedoms of the LGBTQ+ community within the European Union are currently under pressure, a worrying development that challenges the EU's core values. At the same time, the EU is struggling to integrate migration and address gender-based violence, which calls for a rethinking of how these issues touch on the fundamental principles of equality and justice. As a normative power, the European Union has long served as a beacon of liberal values, but current internal and external challenges raise the question of whether the EU can still serve as an inspiration to the rest of the world. These crucial issues are a test not only of the EU's own policies and identity, but also of its influence and leadership on the global stage.
