Europa Dreaming by Matteo Moretti, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano
What happens to the European dream when it meets the migrant's dream? Is this the Europe we dreamt of?
The history of the 500km of European border walls walks together with the history of Schengen, indeed the first European walls of Ceuta and Melilla were financed by the EU, in 1995, the year of birth of the Schengen agreement. Europa Dreaming is an online project that analyzes the migrant crisis on a more wider time scale using statistics, data visualizations, interviews and photos in order to show how the phenomenon has been always managed with temporary solutions, without a deep rethinking of the complete frame.
