Annual Press Conference 2019

2019 Annual Press Conference
Thursday, Dec 6, 2018, 11 am
Haus der Kulturen der Welt

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to the 2019 Annual Press Conference in the lobby of Haus der Kulturen der Welt on Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 11 am.

Director Bernd Scherer is looking forward to presenting next year’s program to you.

HKW is turning thirty. It was founded in 1989, before the fall of the wall, with the vision of a multicultural society in mind. Over the years, Haus der Kulturen der Welt has taken up and reflected political developments in its programs. HKW has become a seismograph of change in contemporary culture and thus attempts to shine a light on new perspectives.

In 2019, the topics of HKW’s projects will range from the power of the binary code to the international history of the Bauhaus, from life forms in the technosphere to questions about how our knowledge is archived up to “Love and Ethnology”. The calculability of the world will be confronted with the experience of the world: “The New Alphabet.”

Following Bernd Scherer’s presentation, the programmers and curators will offer further insights into the upcoming projects from all divisions of HKW.

Please respond by Tuesday, December 4, 2018:

Together with the team at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, would be happy to welcome you to our Annual Press Conference. Refreshments will be served.

Sincerely yours,

Anne Maier
