We promote cultural exchange, education and social discourse

We foster bilateral cultural exchange programs between Germany and South Africa. We initiate film series, exhibitions, concerts, seminars and festivals, always with the goal to facilitate artistic production, reception and reflection involving actors from both countries.

Current Exhibition

The Goethe-Institut is offering South African-based visual artists working in the fields of painting, sculpture, textiles, photography and installation the opportunity to exhibit their work at the institute's premises in the suburb of Parkwood, Johannesburg in 2024.

Funding for Arts and Culture

With its worldwide calls for proposals and residency programs, the Goethe-Institut opens up a space for new perspectives in which artists and cultural workers can pursue their projects free of economic pressure and establish and deepen lasting contacts.

FUNDING FOR ARTS AND CULTURE - Dance and theatre  



Rock, pop, hiphop, electro: at the beginning of every month we shine our search beacon into the nation’s studios and clubs from Kiel up north to Weilheim way down south. Together with Zündfunk, Bavarian Radio’s scene magazine, we showcase the latest music by riveting off-the-charts bands. Pop made in Germany can also be downloaded here.
