In Nacht vor Europa (Night before Europe), Maurizio Cirillo sets off on a search for traces of the Today, of what characterises and constitutes it. During days of forays through southern Italy, he engages with the continent of Europe, with it’s past and future.

From the tomb of the Capuchin monastery in Palermo, traveling on stony, seemingly endless roads, through the barren landscapes of Sicily, right up to Etna. Through the grey suburbs of Naples, to the residential complex Vele di Scampia. To archaeological collections, to the Cave of the Sibyl in Cumae, to Pompeii, and to the Lago d’Averno in Pozzuoli.

It is a subjective, personal search, a kaleidoscopic journey through space and time. Straddling the divide between documentation and fiction, Nacht vor Europa (Night before Europe) reflects on the future of Europe in diary-like entries, sketches and self-talks, photographs and videos. These turn into walk-in installations in the Republik Kugelmugel in Vienna’s Prater.
