"It is with humility and gratitude that we accept here together the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the European Union. In times of uncertainty, this day reminds the people of Europe and the whole world of the very purpose of the European Union: to strengthen the brotherhood between European nations now and in the future. This is our task. This was the task of generations before us. And this will be the task of the generations after us. Here in Oslo, I want to pay tribute to all the Europeans who dreamed of a continent reconciled with itself, and to all those who strive every day to make that dream a reality. This Nobel Prize belongs to them."
Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council
In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its commitment to peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe. That is great. Never before has there been peace in Europe for so long, never before have Europeans - us - been doing so well! We won this prize together and only united can we carry this great achievement into the future.
The interactive installation WON/ONE enables visitors to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in person, instead of Martin Schulz, and a photo souvenir for the living room wall is available to take home.
Under the "Working Title: Europe" more than 70 Saxon artists submitted their work sketches, short pieces and installations on the theme cluster Europe. Collectives, groups and solo artists from all artistic disciplines who produce art outside of a highly cultural establishment in the Free State were invited. A jury of experts selected 17 formats from the broad spectrum for the two-day interdisciplinary theme tour.
