The international and interdisciplinary design competition ‘EMEE Young Scenographers Contest’ is part of the EU research project ‘EuroVision – Museums Exhibiting Europe’ (EMEE). The project aims to advance the modernization and internationalization of museums by re-interpreting museum objects and topics from a trans-regional European perspective. The EMEE project is funded by the Culture Programme of the European Commission and is being realized by eight international partners between 2012 and 2016. The core idea of the contest is ‘Change of Perspective’ – to look at museum objects from a regional, national and European perspective, to reveal their complex diversity of meanings and to turn them into a multi-perspective, synaesthetic experience by means of scenography. The purpose of the competition is to explore creative ideas and innovative design concepts of the younger generation, and their approach towards staging objects and topics in a trans-regional European context.
