Is the contemporary Europe possible without culture? What sustains harmonious coexistence of members of the society when there are a lot of independent cultural players and stakeholders? How does the experience of contemporary art influence the civic action? These are some of the questions raised by the authors of the book.

The presentation of the book takes place with the support of Flanders Literature and the Embassy of Belgium in Ukraine.
