Cafeteria Goethe-Institut

As part of TANZPLATTFORM DEUTSCHLAND, the Goethe-Institut traditionally orga-nizes discussions with and for artists. Since the TANZPLATTFORM DEUTSCHLAND, again after a number of years, takes place in Munich, where the headquarters of the Goethe-Institut is also located, the Goethe-Institut invites artists and visitors, as well as other interested parties, to breakfast discussions over coffee, cappuccino, pretzels or croissants. An experimental discussion format offers the opportunity to reflect on and discuss what has been seen and what can be seen in an international setting, as well as to talk to artists about their concerns, their working methods, about internatio-nal networks, and also about what is currently moving all of us and what is socially relevant.

Organizer: Goethe-Institut

DANCE History Tour

The bike ride through dance history is a literal take on the idea of an archive in motion – a unique kind of urban experience that was produced during the Munich festival DANCE in May of 2019. The tour takes the participants to places that are connected to the dance history of Munich in the early modern age.
