Kultursymposium Weimar

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. 

What challenges arise as generations coexist together, what opportunities arise from looking back into the past, and what questions emerge for a sustainable future? As a global festival of knowledge, networking and artistic exchange the Kultursymposium Weimar 2021 addressed these pressing generational issues of our time.

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.
