Czech Republic & mitteleuropa
The mitteleuropa is a notion referring to a geopolitical and cultural area in the middle of Europe. This term is used in social sciences instead of « central Europe », which doesn’t really mean anything. Indeed, countries of mitteleuropa are defined by they common history, generally linked to German culture, and their common interests in politics – regarding European union for example. We generally consider countries such as Czech republic, Poland, Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Germany and Slovenia as part of mitteleuropa. In the gallery below, you will find some of my recent work in this area, with a focus on Czech republic where I lived a few month, but also pictures from the Polish-Belarus and Ukraine-Belarus migratory events.
