Looking back, looking forward: A new director in Boston

One leaves, another arrives: the six directors of the Goethe-Institut’s locations in the United States are reassigned every four to six years. February 1 marked another changing of the guard in Boston. After spending the last six years in Boston, Detlef Gericke will be heading to Vilnius (Lithuania), and Christoph Mücher will be coming to New England from the Goethe-Institut’s Head Office in Munich. We spoke with the old and new directors at the Goethe-Institut Boston about the change in leadership. More
