Accompanying the exhibition Europe: Ancient Future we recommend a series of publications that deal with questions of the current exhibition: What can we learn from antiquity? What is a possible future for Europe? How are these connections rethought in artistic positions of the exhibition? Can we rethink contemporary Europe by means of Aristotle’s model of democracy?
The publications are freely accessible in the house and invite you to stay longer. The selection consists of theoretical texts, interdisciplinary secondary literature and artists’ monographs (involved in the project). The reading circle aims to provide visitors with a deeper thematic entry through an expanded understanding of the context of the exhibition.
Publications relevant to the topic are available in the foyer of the institution and can be viewed on site. The reading circle meets on the first Saturday of each month. On the first date, an excerpt from Danielle Allen’s Political Equality will be read together and discussed afterwards.
