Artists for DiEM25

I am proud to be among an amazing group of artists who are donating work to support the grassroots Democracy in Europe Movement 2025.

We are delighted to launch DiEM25´s online auction in partnership with paddle8, Artists for DiEM25, raising funds for DiEM25’s historic campaign to bring democracy and humanity back to Europe.

Across the continent, we are witnessing the rise of xenophobia, populism and toxic nationalism. These forces threaten to undo decades of peace, progress and a shared European identity.

DiEM25 is a grassroots movement launched by Yanis Varoufakis, Srecko Horvat, and many others to transform the European Union, bringing people from across Europe and around the world to end austerity, enshrine democracy, and combat the forces of division inside the EU.

This auction will support DiEM25´s transnational campaign, featuring works by a wide range of international artists who share the vision of a democratic Europe.

Auction preview: 30 January  to February 4, 2019Bidding period: from February 5 through February 19, 2019.
