exhibition restless youth open to the public from 1st march
From 1 March onwards, the exhibition ‘Restless Youth: Growing up in Europe, 1945 to now’ will be on show at the House of European History in Brussels. Tinker made an exciting exhibition that immerses visitors in the history of European youth culture and that emphasises that we are all young (or used to be).
The exhibition take you through four generations that grew up at crucial points in European history: the 40s, 60s, 80s and 2000s. The defining experiences of youth form the leitmotiv in this journey through time: from work and education, developing an identity, to becoming politically active, and finding love.
The atmospheres of the consecutive periods are re-created with an innovative mix of objects, multimedia, and personal stories. Music, film, fashion, art, and television are quintessential to revive the times and catch the zeitgeist. For each generation, a graphic design was created, based on the media used by young people in their days.
The exhibition runs from 1 March 2019 to 29 February 2020.
