Fikrun wa Fann was a cultural magazine of the Goethe-Institut, which for more than 50 years has set itself the task of promoting the cultural exchange between Germany and Islamic cultures. The magazine featured authors from Germany, Europe and the Islamic world, among other international voices. In addition to information and dialogue with and within Islamic cultures, Fikrun wa Fann offered a literary forum for current social policy debates.
Fikrun wa Fann was published twice a year, the last issue (issue 105) came out in autumn 2016 on the subject of "Flight and Expulsion".
We would like to thank all readers and recipients of Fikrun wa Fann for their interest.
