The Europeans: The Former Capital (2020)

The Former Capital is the first regional publication of The Europeans, the new multi-year project by Arnold van Bruggen and Rob Hornstra. The Former Capital is a region where in the wake of newfound independence, nationalism and militarism are on the rise. The search for a strong, own identity is strengthened by a stagnating economy and the consequences of depopulation. The surge of globalism, open borders and a new morality often clashes with those clinging to the values of the conservative class.

“Ten percent of our population has gone to the West. They contribute to economic growth there. It’s logical to ask for some compensation.”
— President Gitanas Nausėda
