The theme of the 2015 festival: borders
The aim is not to stage a rhetorical celebration of the centennial, but to tell the multifaceted story of what really happened, using different languages and approaches. Our reasoning will revolve around a word which was fundamental for that time and which accompanied and characterised the Great War: borders.
