“Cultural Anthropocene: On our way towards a European cultural policy?”

Can transnational cultural policies counter the current nationalistic and populist movements?

Nationalist and populist parties are whipping up anti-European sentiment. To highlight the importance of culture as a unifying force, Germany and France are founding cultural institutes together. What opportunities and risks does this present? How will these institutes position themselves substantively? How will they evolve from a bilateral into a European project? Does a common European culture even exist and, if so, what does it consist of and how can it be promoted?

The panel will be held in German, English and French.
