• It is necessary that Europe and every single European see Culture not as an entertainment (only as that), but as a real opportunity to achieve brotherhood, respect and peace. Those are the basis of a good future. Culture is must not be the last thing in the list of the politicians, but a real and strong invest for interchangings, knowledge beetwen Europeans and with the entire world, and to achieve respect beetwen comunities. 

  • Thank you to all who contributed so openly and willingly to our discussions today.

  • education is key - peace, art, knowledge, health care, nourishment, equality, etc., are the basics for a global civilisation. 

    • Education... or even more precise the sharing of learning and ideas between generations is key... a less market driven approach and more attuned to providing the individual with the mechanisms for making life choices which can contribute to a more informed society...  Placing the humanities at the same, if not higher, level of importance to the subjects forced by industry and greed...

    Let's talk practice
    Jamm’Europe is an ephemeral online platform, an open space, to discuss what role culture and the arts can play in the future of Europe. Which scenari…
  • Why do we want globalization on the first place? Whose interest it is besides a small elite who has the cultural and other capital to exploit it to their own benefit?
    If we are not capable to create institutions (and people even lost hope and trust that they can) what makes us believe that culture (art?? Or ?) could contribute to the control of runaway exploitation ?
    Or am I too pessimistic?
    • I'm not sure it's about wanting globalisation or not. It's just a reality which we need to shape in the most positive manner possible.

    • Hmm - I was not happy with globalization for this thread, Robert. And then again there is a sort of globalized Art World (ART Basel, Miami, Hongkong) with its glamorous events that are a part of the cultural sector, too...

    • This stems back to the appropriation of the world globalisation...  in its industry meaning it had the idea of a world wide market place where the lowest prices for production could be sought... it then transfered to the software industry where it meant creating a generic form of an application which would facilitate localising it for regional markets...  now it means the big wide global marketplace and sharing in society... which carries the implication...  do we mean a world that agrees to share our values? or do we mean a world that shares mechanisms of respect? or stemming back to the original... do we mean a generic culture mutually agreed at its lowest common denominator?

      Or, as is the case in quite a large range of cultural practices... shared language and denominators for the prevalent cultural elite... which can lead to the exclusion of those who do not fit the western focused rubric?

    • Right. Well basically it is still just a form of economical imperialism.
