"Like ping-pong"

By Pascal SteinwachsLex Kleren Switch to German for original article

Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron only exist as a duo. Their body of work is remarkable, their current multimedia exhibition well worth seeing. What to expect.

A red carpet surrounded by flags and security gates that seems to stretch endlessly, while an indefinable murmur of different languages can be heard in the background. The whole scene is somehow like the summit circus that the meetings of the EU leaders in Brussels, which take place several times a year, have become for some time now, since here, in the new building of the European Council, the EU grandees also have to walk across a very long carpet, on which they usually speak a few non-binding platitudes into the microphones of the world press. Afterwards, they can calmly argue behind closed doors about the future of Europe, also and especially about migration policy.

The red carpet, the flags and the security gates are not in Brussels, of course, but on the first floor of the capital's casino, where in the past, during the days of the European Coal and Steel Community (CECA), not only a piece of European history was written, but where currently, and until the end of January, the latest multimedia exhibition of the artist duo Karolina Markiewicz and Pascal Piron can be seen: "Stronger than memory and weaker than dewdrops".
