Cultural exchange. Education. Discourse.

The Goethe-Institut Korea offers various projects that aim to facilitate an open exchange of ideas and experiences among the art and culture scene. We aim to create platforms where people can come together, discuss current topics, and foster cultural encounters. We collaborate closely with institutions, initiatives, and artists to support the development and realization of cultural projects. As a German cultural institute, we also provide information on the production of cultural and artistic content in Germany.
