EUROPE MACHINE

Around his production of HAMLETMASCHINE, director Oliver Frljić and the philosopher and activist Srećko Horvat create a two-month interdisciplinary programme on Europe in the 20th and 21st centuries. The series of events deals with the continent's violent history and disturbing present across all genres - but not least with its positive perspectives. In various formats - discussions, readings, film screenings, performances and a conference - numerous guests from literature, science, art, and journalism will be invited to develop ideas for the future from a critical analysis of the past. Many of the events are created in cooperation with our partner institutions Kunsthalle Wien, Brunnenpassage and Filmmuseum. Scroll down to discover the diverse programme!

Oliver Frljić was born in Bosnia in 1976 and is a director. His aesthetically radical productions are always controversial and polarise viewers by taking a political stand. Frljić is a regular guests at international theatre festivals such as the Wiener Festwochen. He was the artistic director of the Croatian National Theatre in Rijeka from 2014 to 2016, when he resigned as an act of protest against Croatian cultural policy. In 2018 he founded the Europa Ensemble at the Schauspiel Stuttgart; as of the ongoing season he is a resident director at the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin. Frljić’s production of Heiner Müller’s DIE HAMLETMASCHINE opens DIE EUROPAMASCHINE, which Frljić is curating together with the philosopher Srećko Horvat.

Srećko Horvat is one of the most intriguing philosophers of the younger generation. He has published several books (e.g. “What Does Europe Want?” with Slavoj Žižek; “The Radicality of Love”) and he also co-founded the Democracy in Europe Movement (DiEM25) together with the former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis and ran for a seat in the European Parliament. As the co-curator of EUROPAMASCHINE*, Horvat will kick off this series of events with a multimedia talk on the continent’s future in times of global illiberalism on 18 January.
