BETON International: 1945 - Siebzig Jahre dannach [BETON International: 1945 - Seventy years on]

beto 2015aWith this issue of Beton International, we have managed to gather authors from different parts of Europe and ask them to express their views on the last seventy years as well as on the present of our continent. While we are committed to our continent growing together and to the borders of nation states becoming more permeable, on these issues it seemed appropriate to acknowledge reality and to start from differences between East and West. The consequences of the Second World War have divided the continent for too long for us to deny the different traditions today.
