War Enthusiasm is a project about war enthusiasm in European countries among writers intellectuals and artists in 1914. At the beginning of the First World War they became fanatical nationalists who dreamed of a spiritual rebirth of Europe, which in their eyes had become decadent and soulless by the rise of materialism and rationalistic Enlightenment.
