Issue #11 — Summer 2006: Europe Endless: The Propaganda Campaign for an Old New Continent

writer NAVID KERMANI discovers the continent’s enthusiasm at its farthest edges; historian TONY JUDT tells how the West was an accident; writer KODWO ESHUN and photographer JUERGEN TELLER portray architect DAVID ADJAYE; artist collective SLAVS & TATARS redeem the East in Eastern Europe; artist / musician LINDER STERLING makes irony yield to the mythic again; artist MATTHEW BARNEY explores the sexual transmission between man and machine; writer DIETMAR DATH provokes the culture industry’s center with drastic arts;

art critic HARALD FRICKE on artist MARC BRANDENBURG’s dark power of signs; 1970s band THROBBING GRISTLE inaugurates both the beginning and end of pop; photographer TODD EBERLE exposes his Berlin diary;

the BERLIN REVIEW reflects on nine events, projects, and people from the last six months in the great cultural laboratory; and so much more on 192 pages …
