Exhibition| October 5-7 | Goethe-Institut Boston
Thomas Mann: Democracy Will Win
The exhibition centers on Thomas Mann’s political biography and his years in exile in the US. It also connects to the current sociopolitical issues in Germany and the United States, rendering his call for an active renewal of democracy “in thought and feeling” as relevant today as it was in 1933. Introduction by Veronika Fuechtner, Friday, October 7, 6:00 pm.
Art Exhibition | October 7 - November 5 | SPACE (Portland, ME)
As a global phenomenon, techno has not only shaped music history, but has also set impulses that influence contemporary culture, art, pop culture, media consumption, and technologies. Techno Worlds, an exhibition at the intersection of music, art, pop, media, and technology, traces the multifaceted techno scene and its subcultures of the 1980s to the present day. Additional online and in-person programming supplement local and critical perspectives.

Facets of Sustainability
Plastic in the oceans, forest fires in the Amazon: on Ecologues the Goethe-Institut presents constructive answers to climate change and brings together regional experts in global debates on sustainability. Above all, the question arises: How do we survive the human age?
On this Earth Day 2021, we are excited to release our Sustainability Statement which conveys our commitment to become more sustainable as an institution and build a sustainable world through cultural and educational programming in collaboration with our partners in New England. A first step, we look forward to sharing more soon.
