Kunsthal Rotterdam - Michael Kvium: Circus Europa

The Danish artist Michael Kvium is known for the figurative visual language he uses to tackle the existential themes of humanity. In the exhibition ‘Circus Europa’, Kvium takes the circus as a metaphor for our time to portray a world of entertainment where even the most serious news is characterized by sensationalism and drama. Kvium focuses on the situation in Europe and has chosen to represent the political arena and daily life in the form of a circus performance. He draws the public into the circus ring, into the midst of lunacy and madness. This theatrically staged exhibition – presented as an allencompassing installation – will show a wide array of new works, including paintings, films and sculptures.
