“Queer as German Folk” Goes Digital
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.
Simply put, a “Fehler” is a mistake, but it’s also the response to one of life’s big questions: how do we innovate and make progress? Our answer: often by mistake. Misunderstandings, faulty processors, or dead flies can unexpectedly lead to something new. Celebrate with us and peruse our zine to immerse yourself in big and little mistakes alike.
