The EU has surely experienced easier times – outside forces and
internal struggles are shaking the once strong and confident body to its very core. The European heartbeat has lost its rhythm. What can we do to “Re-Animate Europe”? That is the question the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom asked comic artists and graphic novelists in the third round of their international comic competition “Re-Animate Europe”. Find out what vision our seven finalists, selected out of more than 70 entries, have for a newly revived Europe”!
Have a look at the entries and meet the artists!
