In countries where the Goethe-Institut and other international cultural institutions have had to close their locations due to wars or censorship, many artists and intellectuals have lost spaces for dissent, dialogue and intercultural exchange. Goethe-Institut in Exile is a meeting place, shelter and stage for cultural professionals who can no longer work in their home country because of war or censorship.
Iranian Art and Culture in exile at the Goethe-Institut
From the end of January 2023, the Goethe-Institut in Exile is devoting itself to the cultural scene in Iran. The programme reflects the current situation of the local Arts and cultural scene and gives the German-Iranian community a space for dialogue. The focus is on the question how artistic, literary or even performative positions negotiate the current, but also past political crisis in Iran.
