Germany will take on the European Council Presidency from 1 July to 31 December. We ask, what constitutes Europe? In the future how do we want to live in Europe? What issues do we want to advance across Europe? With our Europe-wide projects presented to you here, we work in an artistic, discursive, and quite critical way to strengthen a common European public sphere, to promote European digital civil society, and to promote ecological cultural change in Europe.
The projects “Europe’s Kitchen”, “Tell Me about Europe”, the “Disappearing Wall”, “#oekoropa” and “Generation A=Algorithm” are part of the German Federal government’s cultural programme for the Council Presidency. Furthermore, the Goethe-Institut is also involved in Olafur Eliasson’s participatory artwork Earth Speakr, which the Berlin-based artist is producing for the German Presidency of the Council of the EU.
