In 2015 , transeuropa 2015 took place under the motto "How do we want to work in the future?". Everyone always seems to be working. The festival wanted us to stop working. So that we then think about why and for whom we go to work.

In 2009 , the transeuropa festival had the theme "Grenzwert – What's your border worth?". In German, this means: How much is your border worth? It was about borders between countries, but also between people. The artists came from Belgium, Germany, Serbia and Turkey.
