Egal welches Alter, egal welche Interessen – in unserer digitalen Bibliothek gibt es eine vielseitige Auswahl an Büchern zum Lesen und Hören, die für alle etwas zu bieten hat. Heute möchten wir euch daraus die folgenden zwei Titel vorstellen:

📚 Theresia Enzensberger kann nicht schlafen, also schreibt sie ein Buch - über: „Schlafen" (Hanser Berlin LEBEN). Sie hangelt sich entlang an den verschiedenen Stadien, die wir in der Nacht durchleben, beleuchtet politische sowie ethische Aspekte des Schlafes, wird zunehmend persönlicher und bietet eine neue Sicht auf die Welt, die Kunst und die Literatur.

👂 Junge Hörer*innen werden im ersten Teil Maja von Vogels „Plötzlich wach!“ (Silberfisch Verlag) mitgenommen in die Geschichte von Annemie. Das Mädchen lebt in einem Wachsfigurenkabinett, das ihrer Familie gehört, und findet das alles eher verstaubt als aufregend. Bis eines Tages die Wachsfigur der Queen verschwunden ist und Annemie auf die Suche geht.

We're thrilled to support Berlin-based theatre maker Nassim Soleimanpour present the world premiere of ECHO which opens this Friday at Royal Court Theatre in London as part of LIFT Festival 2024! 🥳

The show is an uncharted theatrical odyssey where unrehearsed brilliance meets climate crisis innovation, asking, what does it mean to be an immigrant in time and space?

Fusing technology with the oldest tricks in the book, ECHO is an experiment in concept touring: an ambitious, magical, and uncompromising production where no one travels yet everybody can be present.

A stellar lineup of 15 well-known performers have bee announced. One will take to the stage each night, with no clue what is about to be asked of them. Who will you see? Fiona Shaw, Benedict Wong; Sheila Atim; Adrian Lester; Jeremy O. Harris; Rebecca Lucy Taylor aka Self Esteem; Monica Dolan; Meera Syal; Jodie Whittaker; Mawaan Rizwan; Jessica Gunning; Nick Mohammed; Toby Jones, or Kathryn Hunter? and there is one more guest star to be announced...

Directed by Omar Elerian. A co-production with LIFT.

📅 When? 13-27 July 2024
📍 Where? The Royal Court Theatre, London
💸 How much? From £15

Tickets will sell quickly – find out more and book here 👇https://www.goethe.de/ins/gb/en/ver.cfm?event_id=25774426

Grueling midsummer days in Berlin, an unforgettable summer in the backwoods, and memories of childhood summers in northern Syria – today we have three summery books in our luggage, in which the shimmering summer itself plays a role. The best part: with the Goethe-Institut's Onleihe you have an entire library in your suitcase at once and you don’t have to worry about how many books will fit in your suitcase, guaranteed! 📖

In Ulrick Woelk’s 'Mittsommertage' the protagonist Ruth undergoes a series of experiences, which well and truly turn her life upside down. In her novel 'Jahrhundertsommer' Alice Grünfelder depicts an impressive family saga and a time panorama of Germany history from the 1960s to the turn of the millenium. Ronya Othmann’s debut novel 'Die Sommer' tells the story of the tenderness and anger of a world torn between Munich and Syria.

Through two special editions of the Talking Culture podcast, we delve into the Synthetic Sacred, looking at some of our most high-tech creations - in particular, bio-digital convergence and the emergence of synthetic life.

Our guests are artists Agnieszka Kurant and Anicka Yi, scientists Johannes Vogel and Michael Levin, and Mohawk scholar, Keith Williams.

Curated by Lucy Rose Sollitt, these discussions grapple with questions of control, harmony, and emergent relationships between synthetic and natural life forms, offering listeners a thought-provoking journey into the complexities of these evolving paradigms.

Inspired by the thrilling in Germany, we partnered with the Deutsche Schule London to organise a special one-day football cup for students last Friday. ⚽🏆

The event was a huge success: 13 teams from 7 schools competed in an action-packed tournament, and with team names like “Die Kleinen Klopps”, “Brezel”, “Ende der Straße” and “Goodbye Lenin!”, it was clear that these young athletes meant business!

The teams had travelled from far and wide (Wales! Liverpool! Dartford!) and brought their A-game to the pitch. The atmosphere was electric as they competed throughout the day.

Off the pitch, there was plenty of entertainment, too. Plus, the young athletes were rewarded with bespoke football shirts, medals, trophies and prizes. Beyond the competition, the spirit of fair play prevailed throughout the day, and everyone enjoyed themselves and made lots of happy memories! 👕🏅

Our film of the month in July is the film ‘Vacation’ (Thomas Arslan, 2007).

Summer, sun, holiday season, a remote country house in the Uckermarck and a family group picture that falls apart piece by piece. Thomas Arslan's ‘Vacation’ is the portrait of a family spanning four generations, whose story is told through various love stories.

Raindance Spotlight: Eternal You (Hans Block & Moritz Riesewieck, 2024) – London Premiere and Q&A with Director Hans Block

Nominated for Best Documentary Feature ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Can a digital entity compensate for the loss of a loved one? Following tech start-ups developing ‘digital doppelgangers,’ with the help of AI and Big Data, Eternal You examines the story of people who live on as digital replicants in the pockets of their loved ones.

A nuanced, sensitive and timely documentary, Eternal You explores the ethical issues presented by the fledgling digital afterlife industry. It’s a business which aims to bring comfort to the recently bereaved, a business which claims that artificial intelligence can help human beings to process that most personal of experiences: grief.

📅 When? Thu 20 Jun, 9 PM

Returning with its 32nd edition, the indie film festival Raindance has teamed up with German Films this year to bring a focus on German cinema to London. 📽

Talking Culture #20: ‘Biotechnologies and the Web of Life’ is now available 🎧

We are joined by Anicka Yi (Award-winning conceptual artist), Keith Williams (Mohawk scholar) and Lucy Rose Sollitt (Researcher and cultural programmer). Together, we ask questions about the place of indigenous cosmologies and thought within the context of biotechnologies and the psychedelic renaissance.

Episode 20 was curated by Lucy Rose Sollitt who wanted us to ponder: What new pathways of understanding - and action - could arise, if we assessed the creations of biotech according to indigenous cultural and moral codes?

Talking Culture is a platform for thought-provoking discussions about the future of Europe, the UK, and the world 🎙️
