We warmly invite you to Russia: a part of Europe or apart from Europe? on 3 June at Frascati Theatre in Amsterdam. This programme is part of Forum on European Culture: Act for Democracy!
We tend to overlook Russia when discussing the future of European democracy, whereas 77 percent of the Russian population lives on European territory. A missed opportunity, since Europe can no longer afford to consider the future of European collaboration and democracy solely from a Western-European perspective.
In Russia: A part of Europe or apart from Europe? Kysia Hekster (former NOS-correspondent Russia) asks Russian experts and artists to reflect on the future of Europe. What’s their take on the future of European democracy and the European Union? How does the ideological question of Russia being a part of or apart from Europe resonate in their ideas and work?
Russian journalist and photographer Sergey Ponomarev won the Pullitzer Prize for his photo series that captured the refugee crisis. Artistic diretor of the Ural Biennial Alisa Prudnikova focusses on East-West relations, while working on a new platform: The Renaissance Project in Brussels. In Russia: A part of Europe or apart from Europe? Ponomarev and Prudnikova will talk about their projects and discuss the future of Europe. Dancers and actors will reflect on the same theme in lively intermezzo's.
Date: Sunday 3 June
Time: 15:00 - 17:00 hrs
Location: Frascati Theatre, Nes 63, 1012 KD Amsterdam
