Made in Europe
Made in Europe, known from the eponymous bestseller by Peter Steinz, describes cultural icons from Europe. The series divides into eight different themes such as Rebellion, Free Woman and The Dark Side. On his journey, Dimitri will search for the cultural identity of the icons and he will try to find out in what way art conjoins Europe.
A connection is made between the cheeky Pipi Longstocking, punk and Jacques Brel. But also the creation of the miniskirt, the predictions of Jules Verne and the myth of the bloodthirsty Dracula will be discussed.
