This podcast series is produced as part of The European Pavilion: an initiative launched by the European Cultural Foundation in 2020 in order to encourage imaginaries beyond the national, and address the way people, institutions, and media feel about Europe. With the series, we wish to open up urgent questions that hover in any conversation about the future of Europe. The common thread running through all the conversations is the notion of a European culture of solidarity that addresses some core questions: What initiatives and imaginaries can help overcome the economic and social fractures looming on the horizon? How to move from constructed and exclusive national identities to a model that proudly builds upon the richness of the regional and its cosmopolitan ethos? How to bring upon new models of being together and building an inclusive and sustainable future?This podcast is a member of the EuroPod network. Credits:Conceived by Lore Gablier in collaboration with Alejandro RamírezSound design: Alejandro RamírezOriginal music: Gagi Petrovic

    Episode 5: From coal and steel to a just transition

    Episode 5: From coal and steel to a just transition

    To mark the occasion of Europe Day 2021, the European Pavilion Podcast is broadcasting its final episode. Celebrated on 9 May, Europe Day marks the anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, which proposed that a common trade in coal and steel would ensure lasting peace and unity in Europe. Today's challenges show us that this ideal from 71 years ago no longer endures.
    For this concluding episode, we invite three guests from three generations of Europeans to look back at the European project and look ahead to the future. What could be, in the years and decades to come, the cement that holds us together? The emotional and material bond – or ‘cementiment’ – that would weave a sense of Europeanness?

    Episode 4: Building Europe – in the world of infrastructure

    Episode 4: Building Europe – in the world of infrastructure

    Addressing the issue of Europe’s image is not only about what is visible, but also about what escapes our gaze: the ideologies that underpin the European project; the fears, dreams and hopes that shape it; and the infrastructures that support our daily lives and which, paradoxically, often go unnoticed. 
    In this new episode of the European Pavilion Podcast, we discuss the elusive images of Europe and how they might challenge us to imagine our common future. And we ask ourselves: How do we understand the relationship between building a sense of belonging and building an image?

    In the third episode of the European Pavilion Podcast, we invite Australian scientist Tim Flannery to discuss what natural history can teach us about Europe, and what prospects it opens up, including from the perspective of politics. How can we understand public space in relation to nature? How can we envisage a sustainable future for Europe, based on a cultural understanding of our place in the world and our responsibility as part of a global ecosystem?

    Episode 2 (Part 2): Presence and representation – in the park

    Episode 2 (Part 2): Presence and representation – in the park

    In the second episode of the European Pavilion Podcast we ask ourselves: in the light of a post-national and inclusive Europe, how should we address issues of representation? Together with our guests, activists and organizers Zamzam Ibrahim and Jóci Marton, as well as philosopher and novelist Tristan Garcia, we propose to open up the notion of representation and how it resonates politically, aesthetically but also intimately.
    Following the first part of this episode, in which we discuss the relation between being present and being represented, our guests look here at strategies (including self-representation and the role of education) to address representation or the lack of it.
