With the main theme Res Publica Europa, IETM Munich will take a fresh look at the idea of Europe. Is it a cultural entity? A geographical one? What does the EU’s motto "United in Diversity" mean today, in the age of agendas driven by economics and eurosceptic tendencies? Is it a potent ambition yet to be achieved or just a tired phrase? To survive and thrive, Europe needs a shared frame of reference for the multiplicity of identities which are at its heart: national, regional, local and communal.
 
European identity itself is a contested term. So what is our role, as art professionals, in defining it, giving it a meaning, a content and a force to thrive? And how does the European project, idea, and so-called identity relate to the broader, globalised world, beyond national borders? How can we locate and address an audience not sharing our views?
 
You will meet the local artists, get to know controversial positions and have an opportunity to help making a stand for the arts in tomorrow’s world.
 
The pre-meeting trips to Augsburg, Nürnberg or Moosach will take place on the 31st of October.
