BETON International: 1914 – Hundert Jahre danach [BETON International: 1914 - One hundred years later]

beto 2014aThe history of this first issue of BETON INTERNATIONAL is simple: against all the unfavourable real-political, ideological and economic circumstances in which the countries of South-Eastern Europe find themselves, there are countless initiatives and projects among writers, philosophers, sociologists, feminists, social activists and many other citizens that are geared towards encounters and subvert the narrow national frameworks by constantly crossing borders - in the hope of better and fairer societies. Of course, this permeability does not only refer to the borders of these countries among themselves, but also to the borders between them and other European countries. BETON INTERNATIONAL is the product of such an initiative.
