Kultursymposium Weimar 2021 | 16 & 17 June
Young or old: who steers the destiny of the globe? The Goethe-Institut's Kultursymposium in Weimar raised the big question about generations. [...] The generation issue, that much is certain, will also be a matter of concern for future generations. (Deutsche Welle)
THIS WAS KSWE21
On 16 and 17 June 2021 the third edition of the Goethe-Institut’s Kultursymposium Weimar took place, this time with a thematic focus on »Generations«. Every two years, people from all over the world come together to attend this discursive festival for new networks and ideas. Due to the current pandemic, this edition of the symposium took place online, accompanied by selected projects in Weimar and at Goethe-Instituts worldwide.
From rapidly advancing climate change to tough political reforms, from vociferous protests for equal rights to the silent transfer of influence and wealth, from old stories and traditions to the longing for eternal youth: the topic of generations connects many debates and conflicts in our societies.
