Leipzig Book Fair 2017

Program focus Europa21 of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and Leipzig Book Fair (March 23-26, 2017)

With the program focus Europa21, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Leipzig Book Fair offered writers, academics, journalists, artists, and civically engaged citizens a platform for a constructive dialog on the future of Europe.

Entitled We in Europe - What do we stand up for?, with the second edition of 2017, Europa 21 looked back on the events of the past year and asks the pressing questions of if and how solidarity in Europe can be improved in the future.

In five discussions, personalities from various countries discussed their visions and ideas regarding the current challenges in Europe. Dramatic readings, talks with authors, plus an interactive evening event invited the public to discuss and reflect together. Curator was Esra Küçük, member of the direction at the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin and founder of the Junge Islam Konferenz.
