Utopia or Dystopia – The Common European Future

  • Edited by: Erhard Busek und Friedrich Faulhammer
  • Issue: 2/2022

In the midst of highly dynamic developments, the authors of this issue take the time to reflect on utopian and dystopian visions of Europe’s future. The publication gathers thoughts on the role of culture and art, uncovers past and present strategies for coping with disasters, and discusses the functions of new and traditional media in an increasingly difficult quest for truth. This issue of the scientific journal “Der Donauraum” was published by the Böhlau Verlag Vienna and was realized with support from the Federal Government of Lower Austria and ARGE Donauländer as an addition to the Danube Conference in 2020.
