Beyond Us versus Them – The Role of Culture in a Divided Europe


2 Mai 2017 at 6:30 pm

to be held at the
Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union, Brussels

Populism, extremism and Euroscepticism: To what extent can the cultural sector counteract these increasing divisions, which can be understood as an internal threat to the European project? What new forms of cultural cooperation would such a role require?

This event will continue last year’s stimulating discussion at the “European Angst”, organised by the Goethe-Institut in Brussels, as well as ifa’s previous event on the role of culture in the European Union’s external relations.

Keynote: Adam Broomberg, Artist, "Hands Off Our Revolution"

The public conversation will be followed by a "100 years ifa" reception with a performance by DJ Dunya and saxophonist Vincèn Robin.

Please register for this event until 26 April 2017.

Press Review Extra
"Target Europe"

Nationalism, populism, protectionism: anti-European and populist parties are on the rise in many countries. They fuel xenophobia, they propagate a nationalist policy of identity, with the European Union as their pet bogeyman. The ifa's Special Review "Target Europe" addresses the revival of nationalist thinking in Europe, its impact on the arts, culture, the media and science as well as the latters' responsibility to fight back against oversimplifying populist narratives.
