Perspective future

The world is going through a phase of profound upheaval. The climate crisis demands a rapid and consistent change towards a sustainable way of life - and increasing digitalisation is changing all general conditions.
How do we want to live? How can justice be achieved for all generations?

Europe and the world

From feminism to the LGBTIQIA+ movement to postcolonial debates, people in Europe and around the world are demanding recognition, justice and participation. At the same time, these efforts are threatened by shrinking spaces of freedom, increasing radicalism and multiple crises.

What can living together in solidarity in inclusive, pluralistic societies look like? What role can Europe play here?

The Goethe-Institut wants to offer a "space for new perspectives" with its residency programmes and invites artists and cultural workers every year to live and work for a time in another country and another culture. Information in German, French and Dutch.

The language column

How does one find one's way around the rules of the German language, where do new words come from, and what are the most important changes in the use of the language - for example through digitalisation and sensitisation with regard to the gender issue? These and other exciting topics are the subject of our column on the German language.

Comics from Belgium determined the face of European pictorial history in the 20th century. Today, German comic artists are also searching for new narrative forms.
