Introduction of Goethe-Institute: Slides by Emily Sarsam and Frederike Meyer
The Goethe-Institut is a non-profit German cultural association operating worldwide, promoting the study of the German language abroad and encouraging international cultural exchange and relations. Partners of the institute and its centers are public and private cultural institutions, the federal states, local authorities and the world of commerce. Much of the Goethe-Institut’s overall budget consists of yearly grants from the German Foreign Office and the German Press Office. The relationship with the Foreign Office is governed by general agreement. Self-generated income and contributions from sponsors and patrons, partners and friends broaden the scope of the work of the Goethe-Institut.
For TASAWAR Curatorial Studios as well as in all the projects of the Goethe-Institue, the cultural programmers are the organizational link between the experts, the content, the partners and spaces, the participants and the public. They foster the quality of their programs through active networking, mediating between scenes, disciplines and given frameworks. They try to master the art to select good ideas and to accompany them to turn into cultural practice.
