Europa - what now?Illustration: © Tobias Schrank

Europe

Crisis, Brexit, swing to the right: we mainly talk about the EU only when it’s burning. 
What do we want from the EU? What could it still be? How do we want to shape it?
Europe – what now?
 

Statement of the Goethe-Institut London
Culture is global

The Goethe-Institut sees itself as an institution with a European mandate. We subscribe to the vision of an integrated Europe and actively champion a shared and diverse cultural space.


Together rather than alone

What does the EU bring to our daily lives? In other words, what happens when a country no longer belongs to the EU? Answers from different perspectives – illustrated by illustrators from all over Europe.
