The Birth and Death of Europe
Europe is outsourcing more and more rescue operations in the Mediterranean. And while 3D reconstructions of a rescue mission, created by Forensic Architecture and Forensic Oceanography, have shown the Libyan Coastguard is impeding the missions rather than leading them, Europe keeps sending money their way. Migrants, lost at sea, are left to die, and the ones who do make it onto the boat are locked up and even assaulted after their return. Why is it that the European citizen is not − or doesn’t want to be − conscious of what is happening just outside the borders of their ‘Fort Europe’? Which way is European politics headed? And are there still opportunities for the European citizen to change direction?
Philosopher Srećko Horvat (co-founder DiEM25) and Pia Klemp (captain Sea-Watch) will use their own experiences with Europe in this panel discussion, in which they will explore the future of Europe. Read more about the speakers by clicking their names below.
