oh europa

Over 6 months in 2018, Action Hero travelled over 30,000km across Europe in a motorhome, asking the people they met to sing them a love song. These voices, singing with sentiments of love, hope, heartbreak, loss and desire are broadcasting 24/7 from beacons placed, by us, on edges, boundaries, meeting places, borders, margins and the edgelands of the continent.
