The Europe we inhabit today developed as a project in resistance to its past fascisms. But are fascisms only found in the past? This day-long workshop and exchange meeting explores resistance against fascisms as a performative, artistic, cultural, digital and educational instrument of realizing (European) community. Renown artists, curators, scientists, and education experts will discuss openly and co-creatively artistic and communal possibilities of fighting fascist ideas with youth and participants of cultural institutions from Europe, Israel and the U.S. The workshops assemble excellent artistic, curatorial and educational practices with divergent perspectives on the topic - from remembrance cultures to art to activism - to develop new lines and spheres of cooperation.
