EUnderground 2018-2019

About the project

"EUnderground" wants to bring history closer to young citizens through a very unique topic that has so far received only limited attention. The project reveals a hidden and less accessible cultural heritage of former socialist countries: the field of underground culture in Eastern and Central Europe between 1948-89. The project title refers to alternative movements that represented very important means of cultural opposition within the civil society in the Eastern bloc. The project's scientific, cultural and non-formal educational activities about counterculture help significantly to understand the era and to acknowledge the importance of free speech and civil dialogue in democracy. We show different forms of cultural protest against the suppression of freedom of thought and conscience through censorship, as well as accent the contrast between dictatorships and the democratic system of the EU nowadays.
