    Moutanislandglacier was assembled from conversations spurred by Eyjafjallajökull, the Iceland volcanic eruption that halted European air travel during the month of May 2010. The editors of Mountislandglacier used Europeans' resulting feelings of both isolation and physical togetherness to launch a conversation re-examining the idea of Europe. "Through various forms of artistic research and development new, kaleidoscopic perspectives of Europe came about, moving from peripheries such as Turkey and Iceland itself, moving inward to the imaginative world of European identity creation." "….The playful use of fiction to create stories and identity is evident in contributions from Pavla Ascher, John Holten and Alan Pauls. Re-imagining the line of Europe's borders opens the anthology with Urzsula Wozniak's essay on Turkey's relationship with Europe, while Markus Miesson offers an extension of the realm of what can be thought of as 'Europe' with an extract from his East Coast Europe project."-- From Printed Matter.; Edited by Regina de Miguel, Antonio R. Montesinos, Carlos Fdez-Pello.
