On August 9, the Goethe-Institut USA is launching a digitally modified version of the exhibition Queer as German Folk—a global initiative meant to outline the current state of discourse on queer emancipation. The new format allows visitors to experience the queer movement past and present from anywhere in the world. Audiovisual, moving, and interactive forms of presentation provide visitors with an exciting, adjustable, and versatile experience that is simple to navigate and accessible across a range of devices in both English and German on queerexhibition.org. This project was co-developed with Goethe-Instituts across the U.S. and the Schwules Museum Berlin.

The digital festival presented a program of artistic contributions and debates. The focus is on the question of how colonial structures work in the present and how they can be overcome. We have recorded the digital festival for you. In the media library you can re-watch the artistic performances and debates of most international contributors.
How does the past take shape? What happens in the process of coming to terms with the past? What social repercussions are associated with the rooting of history in monuments and memorials? How can those narratives be shifted or upended through alternative, innovative approaches to memorialization? These questions and many others are at the center of our project, Shaping the Past.
