Located in Capitol Hill’s iconic Chophouse Row building, the Goethe Pop Up Seattle will stage a variety of events for the “Year of German-American Friendship” (“Deutschlandjahr USA”) from October 2018 to November 2019 – such as art exhibits, film screenings, lectures, and panel discussions revolving around culture, education, and business.
We strive to create an innovative international program in collaboration with local Seattle organizations and others to give you the opportunity to experience outstanding works by acclaimed artists and speakers related to Germany. The Goethe Pop Up Seattle will be a creative destination that inspires you to discover how Germany and the U.S. can be Wunderbar Together.
