Queer As German Folk Goes Digital

Welcome to QUEER AS GERMAN FOLK GOES DIGITAL presented by the Goethe-Institut in North America in collaboration with its Goethe Pop Ups and the Schwules Museum Berlin (SMU).

The Goethe-Institut USA is launching a digitally modified version of its successful exhibition “Queer as German Folk” – a global initiative meant to outline the current state of discourse on queer emancipation since the Stonewall riots.

The exhibition’s launch will be accompanied by a full program of virtual events organized by various Goethe-Institut and Goethe Pop Up locations in North America.

These programs serve to expand the project by reaching a wider audience and including new, local perspectives. Each event will highlight work from local and international LGBTIQ+ artists, speakers, and activists.

The program will kick off on August 7th, 2020 with a digital film series coordinated by various regional partners that will be available to stream online. The exhibition will be accessible on queerexhibition.org starting August 9.
