Facing new Realities - Freedom and Democracy put to the test: This is what the EUROPACAMP 2022 of the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius in cooperation with ARTE and Kampnagel is all about. A lot has happened in the past time. We have changed. Europe has changed. There can no longer be a »back to the beginning«. We have been in »crisis mode« since the beginning of the pandemic. But above all, the war in Ukraine and the as yet unforeseeable consequences for the structure between East and West are forcing us to confront completely new questions about the future of Europe: What does the current war mean for Europe's foreign and security policy? How can we live in the future with an acute threat from a powerful autocracy that does not share our democratic values? In workshops and panels with experts from many different fields, EUROPCAMP 2022 offers the opportunity to think about and discuss together what Europe's strengths and values are and what we as the European Union can do together with our partners for a peaceful future and coexistence of states. Many challenges await us: besides the war in Ukraine, the climate crisis, attacks on democracy and civil society and coming to terms with the pandemic policy. Art connects - and is part of the EUROPACAMPS programme. The Viennese performance group God's Entertainment is a guest with the installation UNTER DEM TEPPICH (07.-09.04.) and invites you to literally look under the hand-knotted carpet in the form of a German passport in the foyer to discover the things that like to be swept under the carpet. There are concerts by the bands Intergalactic Lovers (08.04.) and Kettcar 810.04.) as well as two editions of Club Bert Tina (08. & 09.04.). On 09.04. Philip Banse and Ulf Buermeyer will be live at EUROPACAMP with their successful podcast Lage der Nation.
