How European is Europe? In Rotterdam, the 2001 Cultural Capital of Europe, curator Salah Hassan posed this question to 18 international artists. Yinka Shonibare, Jimmie Durham, Willem Boshoff, Heri Dono, Coco Fusco, Ni Haifeng, Ken Lum, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons and Keith Piper are just a few of the artists whose non-European perspective has been brought to bear on the contradictions between the official story of Europe and its everyday reality, where heterogeneity, hybridity and cultural influences mutually determine the norm.
