In "New Eastern Europe", Ivan Krastev reveals how to avoid European disintegration; "Esprit" speaks to Jürgen Habermas; "Transit" weighs in on the battle for the commons against commercial enclosure; in "Il Mulino", Wolfgang Streeck contemplates a common currency turned into a common nightmare; "L'Homme" critiques France's anti-gender movement; "Passage" probes the mechanisms of desire in Proust; "pARTisan" profiles a new generation of Belarusian artists; and "Merkur" discerns a clash between art and its mechanical reproduction.
