Transformations of European Existentialism
- transnational mobility
- audience development
After the terrorist attacks like one in Paris, war conflicts in and outside Europe (Ukraine, Isil), global crisis (07/08) and everchanging political and ideological structures in our European surroundings (Syriza in Greece, Podemos in Spain, Left Unity in UK) – all these changes leave our European citizens in a state truly similar to that described by existentialists – state od uncertainty, confusion, disorientation.
Following a period of economic growth, spread of Democracy and enthusiastic adoption of new freedoms, we are in a situation where we have to confront widespread skepticism and find solutions that, presently, don't come to mind. We've chosen three authors who's views on structural changes in our personal lives, our societies and our identity reflect the angst and unease of modern individuals, and show development and transmutation in the literary concept of Existentialism.
To enrich the Croatian culture with excellent and not yet translated works of literature.
We have obtained additional experience of acquiring and finalizing of a European project, and extra experince in book publishing.
