Six Villa Aurora fellows present their works and visions of the future of Europe as part of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences annual theme “Zukunftsort: EUROPA”.

Villa Aurora and the BBAW have been working together closely for many years, the cooperation goes beyond the fact that the Villa Aurora Forum have their offices within the BBAW in Berlin. The annual theme of the BBAW gives the fellows of the Villa Aurora a perfect chance to be active in the debate about the direction in which Europe is moving.

Europe is too important as a cultural and economic landscape for it to be left in a spiral of surfeit, skepticism and a matter of course decision making. The BBAW would like to make a mark on the public debate by organizing the Salon Sophie Charlotte - thereby not only referring to the historical debate, but also adding different voices to the current dialogue about the future visions for Europe.

The Villa Aurora fellows Veronika Kellndorfer, Anna Faroqhi, Norbert Zähringer, Valeska Peschke, Antje Vowinckel, Franz Martin Olbrisch with their guests and partners have used different media, different formats to add their voices to this debate.
