Goethe on Demand: 20 Years of Young Cinema from Germany
Spanning the years from 2002 to 2022, this online series brings together films by directors that have introduced a new spirit into German cinema, experimenting with new ways of telling stories. From works by now established filmmakers such as Maren Ade, Ulrich Köhler, Valeska Grisebach or Christoph Hochhäusler to directors that have emerged more recently like Julian Radlemayer or Melanie Waelde, there is a lot to discover.
We offer three podcast channels in English and German. You can find out more about them below.
Talking Culture is a platform for thought-provoking discussions about the future of Europe, the UK, and the world. Through fascinating interviews with thinkers and doers in the arts and culture sector, this show investigates how creative fields are emerging from the tumultuous present into the future. What role will culture play in a post-Brexit, post-COVID-19, post-colonial world? And how can it contribute to a future that prioritises sustainability, collaboration, diversity, and inclusion? From the Goethe-Institut London, this is a podcast about the critical role and value that arts and culture have in our societies.
