Priorities and Projects

Reflections on the public sphere
Beyond the screen

From September to early February 2024, the Goethe-Institut Montreal, in cooperation with the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), presented a screening programme of 20 video works from n.b.k Video-Forum’s extensive video art collection, curated by Anna Lena Seiser (Head of Collection n.b.k. Video-Forum).

On display were videos by renowned artists from Germany, such as Hito Steyerl, Alicia Kwade and Antje Ehmann, who are no strangers to Quebec - but also video works by international artists, such as Pilvi Takala, Richard Serra and Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries.

Radio Around The World

One hundred years ago, in October 1923, the very first German radio station went on the air in Berlin. On this occasion, we celebrate radio, in retrospectives and personal radio memoirs by international artists and authors!

Berlinale Bloggers 2024

“We are particularly proud of this year’s selection which achieves the best possible balance between auteurs we cherish and admire and powerful new voices in the independent cinema landscape,“ says Carlo Chatrian, Artistic Director, about the nominated Berlinale films. Germany's largest film festival will take place in Berlin from 15 to 25 February 2024. Our bloggers from around the world will be reporting on new films and the people behind them, impressions of the German capital, awards ceremonies and more. Read along!
