  • Description

    • Looked at from the perspective of art, the present publication thematizes "New Europe" as an ambivalent, political project with chances and risks. Currently, 25 states comprise the European Union (EU). The European process of union and integration is based on the idea of a "New Europe," with common currency, constitution, army, and political leadership. On the one hand, "New Europe" is characzerized by the construction of a European community of cultures and values, and on the other, it is directed against U.S. hegemony in global competition. The historical, political, and economic lines of conflict are worked out and discussed are the current trends in art and culture that grasp the European process of union as a chance for designing a critique of Europe. The fine arts have a central importance in this as a border crossing producer of critical models for thinking and viewing, which contributes to enabling the emergence of new cultures of mixing, liberated identities, and options for action.
