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.

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.
