The more I love a square, the more Europe I’ll find nested in it. It’s an unconditional love, as much as it is a contingent love.
Since 2003, artist Yves Mettler has engaged in an ongoing mapping and documentation of Europe Squares, Europaplatzes, Europa Places and Places de l’Europe, along with a series of projects triangulating between particular squares, interrogating their differing architectural, environmental, and public functions, and what they tell us about the ideality of ‘Europe’ and the (im)possibility of its concrete instantiation.
