Close up 2019

With Close-Up to the world: For three to four weeks each, cultural journalists from Germany and the United States of America swap their workplaces. They become familiar with professional routines in their host country and report on their impressions on site. This year's Close-Up takes place within the scope of "Wunderbar Together - The Year of German American Friendship". 

Here you can find information about the participants and soon read their articles in the host media.
