Events | Kultursalon: Hauptsache Kultur

Berlin | November 20, 2018 | 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

An event organized by Stiftung Brandenburger Tor in cooperation with the Kulturpolitische Gesellschaft.

With VATMH-Managing Director Heike Catherina Mertens.

The discussion focuses on the significance of culture and cultural policy for Germany in general and for Berlin in particular. What are the consequences of Berlin's prominent position as capital of the federal state for internal and external cultural policy? How is Germany's cultural representation for example the Thomas Mann House in Los Angeles or the program of the DAAD's Artists-in-Berlin Program perceived?

This cultural salon will be held for the third time together with the Kulturpolitische Gesellschaft on the initiative of Dr. Ing. Sylvia Metz and Wibke Behrens.
