24 Hours at Home in Europe

In this project, photographers, artists and amateurs from all TEH centres were invited by Kulturzentrum Schlachthof (Bremen, Germany) to participate with their personal photographic view of 24 hours in Europe. The leading questions of the call for entries were: How do we live in Europe? What defines our social and cultural dimensions? Which distinctive characteristics and peculiarities define our daily routines? The submitted series of photos were required to follow the course of one day: 24 pictures, one for every hour of the day.

The competition started during the TEH Meeting 62 in September 2006. 38 photographers from 15 European countries participated in the competition and gave their personal view on everyday life in Europe. The entries were later displayed in an exhibition at the Town Hall of Bremen from 23 February to 7 March 2007. The exhibition offered humorous as well as provoking views of Europe today.
