We are excited to welcome the new director of the Goethe-Institut Chicago, Dr. Leonhard Emmerling. His most recent post was at Max Müller Bhavan Delhi (the Goethe-Institut in New Delhi, India) where he served as the Regional Programm Director for South Asia. The Goethe-Institut Chicago team is looking forward to his exciting programming ideas and innovative leadership and is excited to get to work with Leonhard for the next six years.
We wish Petra Roggel, who was the director for the past 6 years, all the best as she continues to work for the Goethe-Institut's main office in Munich, Germany.
Relish the final month of summer 2021 by streaming five popular German films! This streaming service comes to you free of charge, courtesy of our new Goethe on Demand platform. Each of the five films will be available for streaming for a whole week and all come with English subtitles.

Theatre Y creates a social ritual for Chicagoans re-emerging out of COVID-19 on behalf of eleven communities hit hard by the virus and systemic racism, an ambulatory performance along Chicago's Emerald Necklace with the goal of forging new bonds across neighborhoods. This six-week urban pilgrimage seeks to recover our shared humanity and reclaim the walkability that Daniel Burnam intended in some of Chicago's most underserved neighborhoods.
