To the question of who could be at the foundation of Europe’s cultural identity, the philosopher George Steiner made this proposition : “Cafés make Europe”. Political club, opinion factory, creative space, intellectual exchange place and a meeting point for lovers. Cafés stimulate the spirit, galvanize conversation and entertain passion.
Should we add the new generation of social spaces, reimagined creative places, reinvented economic models and alternative entities, to the traditional pre-existing cafés that contributed to Europe’s modernity?
We also took this opportunity to record interviews with Sarah Gamrani, creator of poetry book “Au-Delà du Club” (Beyond Club) – to read here – , and Steven Van Lummel, founder of The Hague’s PIP – to read here.
