Europa - what now?Illustration: © Tobias Schrank


Crisis, swing to the right...we mainly talk about the EU as an economic and political system, and often only when it’s burning.
Now that Brexit is definite, we are going to talk more about Europe as a place and a concept – a continent with an international community.
What does “Europe” mean? What are European ideas? How do we want to contribute to these ideas – to shape a #SharedEurope.

Europe – what now?

Culture has no borders – and should never acquire them. Let’s remain friends.

Katharina von Ruckteschell, director of the Goethe-Institut London

Europe and us

What is our position on Europe? What is Europe's position in the world? Two questions that are linked and their answers could overcome limits and borders.

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.

Europe - Open to debate

Europe as an idea, a concept, a "Staatenverbund": that's open to debate! Let's argue with each other – not against each other. And perhaps we will find common ground on this continent.
