Do you like Potatoes? Or Europeans?
Become part of our project – Let us know how you are dis/connected to Europe.
In this project, we want to visualize the level of dis/connection between the European citizens as well as major European issues. We are collecting video statements of Europeans, of all ages and backgrounds and want to know how YOU are dis/connected to Europe!
Show us your answers on video.

You might wonder: Potato and Europe?
Do those things have something in common? Well, more than one would think.The potato, does not just represent Europe’s dark history with colonialism, but also the bright future with sustainable materials and fuel made out of it.
The potato is found in almost every European household, it is a stable food and feeds millions of people across Europe and the globe, it is cheap, highly nutritious, sustainably cultivable and let us be honest: just extremely tasty on top. And that is why we chose it, because this small vegetable unites so many aspects of Europe, the past, present, and future.
We? We are 25 design students from ENSCI in Paris and KISD in Cologne. Together, we realized an impressive exhibition at Grand Palais Ephémère for the EuroFabrique event in Paris in February 2022 (follow us on Instagram).
And now we want to proceed with you: We are still collecting videos. Please contribute to our project – and stay tuned while we update this website to also share the different videos we collected.
