Cultural journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu swapped his workplace in Yangon for one in Berlin. During his three-week stay as part of the Goethe-Institut’s Close-Up project, he is a guest of the Berlin-based magazine zenith and is reporting on his experiences in the German capital.
The preparations lasted two years. Now the Digital Network University, a project by the Goethe-Institut with universities from Germany, Austria, Russia, Georgia and Ukraine, has officially launched in Berlin. The focus is on international cooperation and conflict prevention.
From 10 to 14 October 2018, the Goethe-Institut will be offering a variety of insights into its literary activities at the Frankfurt Book Fair. In addition to events about the Guest of Honour, Georgia, symposiums will look at present-day challenges in society and culture. The Merck Social Translating Project presents a new form of collaborative translation in the digital space.
