Together with Dr. Harald Henzler Fabian Kern carried out the blended learning programme “E-Publishing” with workshops in Kolkata. In Kochi they performed a workshop on “Digital Publishing” during the “Publishing Next” conference 2016.

My first impression of India…
A country of extremes, in every possible way.

Things in New Delhi that remind me of my home town Munich…
Almost nothing – I could hardly think of two cities being so different.

Something that caught my attention in India (and that is rather unusual in Germany)…
Ernst Bloch developed the idea of “The Contemporary of the Non-Contemporary” – I think I never been to a country before where this idea is so true.

A memory of India that will stay…
Cooperating deeply with so many people across all borders of language and cultural difference.
