How to stage Europe in a museum or in the programme Capitals of Culture? This question will be discussed on the conference‚The making of Europe‘ in Museums and Cultural Programmes. The occasion is the current establishment of the House of European History in Brussels, initiated by the European Parliament. The new museum will visualize the political history of the EU and will function as a room for debate on the future of Europe. Of different origin is the privately funded Musee de l’ Europe. This travelling exhibit visualises Europe as a civil society and embodies the idea of Europe as a network. Also, the well known European Capital of Culture Programme is scattered throughout the EU. However, since the programme was preferably used for citymarketing rather than staging Europe, the rules of the competition were more explicitely defined recently: More of the European dimension must be formulated.
