The Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona (UB) hosts the exhibition “The Rape of Europe” until 14 November. The exhibition is part of an international project on contemporary printmaking and installation. Five education institutions participate: the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon (Portugal), HKU University of the Arts Utrecht (Netherlands), the Arts Institute of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre (Brazil), the Strzemiński Academy of Art in Łódź (Poland), and the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UB. The main objective of this collaborative exhibition is to promote research and creation on present and future situation of contemporary printmaking and installation carried out by lecturers and students at the participating institutions.

 
Entitled “The Rape of Europe”, the exhibition reflects on myth and present situation of Europe from different perspectives (politics, economics, etc.) and the relationships it establishes. Departing from this common topic, each country, considering its own printmaking tradition, provides different creative solutions. Eva Figueras, professor from the Department of Painting and coordinator of the project at UB, “the visitor can observe a great variety of techniques, from the most traditional ones, like drypoint printmaking or etching, to screen printing, linocut, and digital printmaking. Surfaces are diverse too, from the classic printmaking to an artist’s book, fabric and plastic rubbings, etc. Moreover, some interesting two-dimensional and three-dimensional installations can be observed”.
 

Representing the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UB, lecturers Bibiana Crespo, Miquel Planas and Eva Figueras, and students Sandra March, Pilar Rosado, Marian López, Encarna Romero, Anna Brucart, Xavi Rodríguez and Maria José Botero have participated in the exhibition. “Joint efforts favour work’s diversity and quality. Professors and students were able to work together with professionals and students from other education institutions and to compare their results”, points out Figueras. Once the exhibition will be closed, works will be part of the collection of each participating institution.
