European citizens

A series of 15 steel statues remain in the Schuman district, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, which was signed on 25 March 1957.

The series of statues, located on the four corners of the Jean Monnet crossroads behind the Berlaymont, are titled “European Citizens” and were created by German artist Suzanne Boerner.

“These life-size sculptures are eye-catching and add cheerfulness to a district that is usually associated with European institutions,” says Marion Lemesre, the Brussels alderwoman for economic affairs. “The artwork represents EU citizens from diverse backgrounds.”
