Culture Shock Trump?

How U.S. Policies Influence the Arts, Culture and Science

Within just a few days of taking office, President Donald Trump has begun to change the political scenery of the U.S., decree by decree. His policies affect the arts, culture and science: Universities are to suffer financial cutbacks; the immigration ban for individuals from seven majority-Muslim countries threatens to damage the international exchange in the arts, culture and science. Still, Trump's executive orders do not go unchallenged: Museums and universities refuse to accept this growing isolation without a fight. Our special press review 'Culture Shock Trump?' explores current developments in the U.S. and their consequences for the arts, sports, the media and science.
