Culture: The Base of Civil Society is a new book of the Small Run Books series, which unites two articles co-written by Pascal Gielen and Thijs Lijster, published by Culture Commons Quest Office and Valiz.
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.
