€25.00

We began work on this issue with a simple question in mind: why is there so much more euphoria for Europe at the periphery, in the new and aspiring EU member states, than in the center?  ”From now on, the EU will be bold, explicit, popular,” states REM KOOLHAAS in our cover story on EUROPE ENDLESS. Foreign-policy thinker MARK LEONARD discusses how the European Union is as convincing an answer in the 20th century to globalization as it was to the problem of war in the 20th; AMO/OMA present a 28-page fold-out, graphic history of Europe since 1946;

writer NAVID KERMANI discovers the continent’s enthusiasm at its farthest edges; historian TONY JUDT tells how the West was an accident; writer KODWO ESHUN and photographer JUERGEN TELLER portray architect DAVID ADJAYE; artist collective SLAVS & TATARS redeem the East in Eastern Europe; artist / musician LINDER STERLING makes irony yield to the mythic again; artist MATTHEW BARNEY explores the sexual transmission between man and machine; writer DIETMAR DATH provokes the culture industry’s center with drastic arts;

art critic HARALD FRICKE on artist MARC BRANDENBURG’s dark power of signs; 1970s band THROBBING GRISTLE inaugurates both the beginning and end of pop; photographer TODD EBERLE exposes his Berlin diary;

the BERLIN REVIEW reflects on nine events, projects, and people from the last six months in the great cultural laboratory; and so much more on 192 pages …
