The Goethe-Institut in Exile opened the country focus Afghanistan with a three-day festival (30.6.-2.7.2023). After the festival, performances, readings, concerts, but also discussions, workshops and film screenings are planned until the end of the year. The programme aims to strengthen the country's art and culture, and especially to support women and minorities. Thus, on the one hand, the Goethe-Institut in Exile relies on the experience and expertise of partners from Afghanistan and, on the other hand, works to create new networks and connections for the German-Afghan cultural exchange and to maintain spaces for discourse.

In review: In October 2022, the Goethe-Institut in Exile project opened with a festival focusing on Ukraine. At the beginning of 2023, an event series on Iran took place due to the current protests. At the end of June, the new country focus Afghanistan started with a festival. Selected content is now available in our media library. Here you will find panel recordings, festival reports, interviews, radio program and our highlights in pictures.
