Meeting Modern Visionaries

Documentary In Search of Europe

For his project In Search of Europe, Lucas De Man travelled during the summer of 2015 in 30 days through 17 cities in 8 countries. Accompanied by a camera team he searched for the upcoming generation of European creators: creative professionals that fight for change in society.

Modern visionaries

Lucas discovered a generation that has a pragmatic-idealistic worldview. This generation uses art and technology in different ways to create communities and societal movement in a common battle for conservation of our commons, a new democracy and a world in which we live closer together.

In the documentary In Search of Europe, meeting modern visionaries, Lucas shares his highlights and insights of his journey. Meet the creator, discover their projects and see how this upcoming generation is not about creating a better world, but about creating a sense of community.

The performance De Man in Europe

Lucas also made a live report of his journey: the performance De Man in Europe. The performance already has been played in 8 different countries, was selected for the Theaterfestival in 2016 and is, just like the documentary, part of the project In Search of Europe. In De Man in Europe, Lucas makes the interaction with the creators even more dynamic; alongside with the creators he tells us what his trip was about, what inspired him to do it and most of all what we can do as citizens.
