Frankfurt, Here We Go!

First impression matters! Thanks to its international airport, Frankfurt is very often the first city people would set foot on when visiting Germany or Europe. Other than serving as the European hub for business and finance, what more can we expect from this city?

Berlin, Here We Go!

Travel seems like a remote dream for all of us now. Which city do you miss most? If it happens to be Berlin, then you just can’t miss our new social media series BERLIN, HERE WE GO!. Kristen Wong, a former Goethe-Institut Hongkong's student who now bases in Europe, shares with us a Berlin that we probably never know!

Since most travel restrictions were lifted earlier this year, many of us have already traveled once, twice or many times! Our Goethe-friend Kristen is no different! Earlier in March she has paid a visit to Lübeck, a city in northern Germany. Want to know more about this coastal city? Don’t miss our new video series Lübeck, Here We Go!

In German Contemporary Painting and Sculpture
The Female Gaze

Five female painters and one sculptress from Berlin and Leipzig have been invited to share their gaze with us. In their paintings and sculptures, they explore body images and sensuality, address relationships and memories, and question traditional as well as contemporary gender roles. The 26 selected artworks are strong, as diverse as they are humorous, and result in a kaleidoscope of female identities that confidently confronts the gaze of our world.
