Eurovision – Museums exhibiting Europe (EMEE) is a project funded with support from the European Commission to explore an innovative interdisciplinary approach for national and regional museums, aiming at re-interpreting their objects in a broader context of European and transnational history. Museum visitors shall face objects not only on a regionally and nationally determined level of meaning, but discover transnational and European perspectives using new means of presentation, performances and possibilities for participation. At the same time the project develops creative concepts for audience development and studies methods to attract the rather large number of “non-visitors” to the museums.

One of the initiatives organised by EMEE project is the international and interdisciplinary design competition titled The Young Scenographers Contest, whose motto was “One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions”.

Prof. Uwe R. Brückner and Linda Greci (ATELIER BRÜCKNER) were responsible for the concept and organisation of the contest. International students and young professionals – of design, scenography, architecture and other creative disciplines, as well as museum and cultural studies – were invited to create ideas and develop design concepts for a multi-perspective, synaesthetic presentation of museum objects. The goal was to find new transcultural approaches to present regional objects in a European dimension via contemporary, content-consistent exhibition design and new formats of presentation.

Four entries of the EMEE Young Scenographers Contest were awarded at the public award ceremony within the Design Monat Graz, followed by the vernissage of the travelling exhibition that presents the best entries. The exhibition will be shown in the Museum im Palais in Graz, from May 8 to June 7, 2015, and it will move in several European cities till October 2016: Ljubljana, Sofia, Lisbon, Paris, Brussels and Basel.

The EMEE project is coordinated by the Chair of History Didactics of the University of Augsburg.
Project partners are the National Archaeology Museum in Lisbon (Portugal), the Museum of Contemporary History in Ljubljana (Slovenia), the National Historical Museum in Sofia (Bulgaria), the ATELIER BRÜCKNER in Stuttgart (Germany), the art association monochrome in Vienna (Austria), the Roma Tre University in Rome (Italy) and the University Paris-Est Créteil – ESPE in Paris (France).
