The Goethe-Institut is organising an international cultural symposium in Weimar from the 19th to the 21st of June 2019 under the title "Recalculating the Route". More than 300 participants from all over the world will come to Weimar to discuss the great upheavals of our time.
All around the world, future pathways are being recalculated. Rapid technological development is producing fundamental changes in society, culture, and the economy, and is introducing unforeseen possibilities and posing many new questions. At the same time, the desire for manageable and easily understandable circumstances seems to be increasing worldwide. Straightforward answers to an increasingly complex world are in high demand, and not only in the political sphere.
The Kultursymposium Weimar is a series of events organised by the Goethe-Institut in which an international group of experts, artists and speakers from a range of disciplines discuss the societal issues that are affecting us globally. The lectures and discussions at the symposium will be accompanied by a diverse supplementary programme featuring exhibitions, performances, film screenings, and other events.
