Director

+ 49 - (0)30 - 397 87-162

Scherer holds a doctoral degree in Philosophy from the Universität des Saarlandes and is author of several publications focussing on aesthetics and international cultural exchange. He comes to the Haus der Kulturen der Welt from the Goethe-Institute, where he served as Director of the Goethe-Institute Mexico from 1999 through 2004 and subsequently as Director of the Arts Department for the Head Office in Munich. Previously, Scherer headed the Department of Humanities and Culture at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and also served as its Deputy Director. The start of his directorship thus represents a return to an institution in which he from 1994-1999 played a decisive role with respect to organizational and artistic development.
