Frank Baumann, Director, Goethe-Institut Belgrade

Bridge Between Serbia and Germany

The Goethe-Institut is a cultural institution from Germany that has been promoting and advancing German language learning for nearly 50 years and that fosters international cultural cooperation

The biggest and most exciting collection of German art ever presented by the Goethe-Institut to the Serbian public will be the art exhibition “Weltreise”, to be shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade from 25th January to 26th March 2019.

Apart from offering German language courses, what are some other activities of the Goethe-Institut in Belgrade?

The Goethe-Institut aims to connect people from the cultural spheres of Serbia and Germany for their mutual benefit. I’m talking about a film and stage directors, authors, artists, musicians, photographers, architects, as well as professionals in the fields of education and culture.

In 2019, we will continue to keep our partners, audiences and customers satisfied and enriched with arts

Developing cultural programmes means collaborating as closely as possible with everyone in the cultural sphere, not only those in the limelight; our focus is set on all cultural managers and their institutions, and vice versa. We have close relations with official institutions, as well those representing so-called civil society. Some of our partners in 2018 have been – in no specific order – BITEF Festival, Belgrade Cultural Centre, Belgrade Jazz Festival, Kragujevac Jazz Festival, Museum of Modern Art of Vojvodina in Novi Sad, KROKODIL Centre, Belgrade Photo Month, Beldocs Festival, Merlinka Festival, Festival Dev9t in Stara Ciglana, KC Grad, Kinoteka, Remont Art Centre etc.

European cooperation is also essential, and it’s great to have an active EUNIC structure in Serbia. Not to forget our regional training programmes, like First Films First – a Young Directors Academy, or the Next Generation project on the “Art of Failure”. Well, the latter is not our general motto.
