Remco Torenbosch’s EU, 2011-2015 is informed by the color blue of the EU-flag as well as its production and history. The European Union is in flux, the once dominant textile industry in the 28 member states is loosing on importance while socioeconomics inside the union are changing. With his work Remco highlights the individual aspects and identities insight a presumably alliance: each fabric was produced by local weavers of the EU countries but still they all differ in the nuance of their blue color.
