[Nettime-ro] European Picnic

On May 1, 2004 the European Union will expand beyond
its current 'core Europe' constellation to include, for the first time, nations of the former Eastern and Non-Aligned Blocks. For these tennations the 'day of accession' is the opportunity to rejoin a European sphere which, for  many,
was felt to have been robbed through the militarily enforced alliances of the Cold War.
> By recalling the pan-European Picnic of 1989 along
the Austrian-Hungarian border, which induced the events leading to the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the Trans_European Picnic will mark the resultant shift in  Europe’s geopolitical structure. For many however, the 'opening' brought about by the events of 1989 are now to be met by 'managed closure', restricted mobility, the revival of 'visa regimes' delineating new barriers and borders as well as the imposition of new top-down regulations, bureaucracies and standards.

gathering in and

European Union's new
> transnational edge, the Picnic will bring together

explore the changing

conglomerate of

Trans_European Picnic will

evolving sense of

countering the

Europe of the
