After the photo art project “HEIMAT. Germany – Your Faces”, CARSTEN SANDER is now embarking on a search for the identity of a heterogeneous community consisting of over 447 million inhabitants in 27 European countries with “Faces Of Europe”. On his journey through the European Union, Sander now once again portrays 1,000 faces. With this work he sets a sign for integration and humanity. A statement for human rights, common values and a peaceful coexistence.

Faces of Europe is a cultural project selected by the Federal Foreign Office to celebrate the German Presidency of the EU, which commences in June 2020 in Brussels. Exhibitions will be shown in Brussels, Strasbourg, Madrid, Luxembourg, Dublin, Warsaw, Berlin, Munich, Shanghai, the Ruhr region and Moscow.
