Our mission

Our libraries are public and non-commercial places that offer an inspiring atmosphere for exchange and meeting. Carefully curated collections of analogue and digital media convey an up-to-date image of Germany and support learners of German.

In many different projects we work together with partners from civil society, especially from the library, media and information scene. The topics range from artificial intelligence to reading promotion, from environmental protection to cultural heritage.

Our libraries are also open spaces for experiments: For example, the hub for social entrepreneurs in Johannesburg, a Library of Things in Bratislava, a professionally curated art gallery in Belgrade, regularly changing themed rooms in Prague, Warsaw and many other places, a multimedia studio in Addis Ababa, a makerspace in Cairo and much more.

Through inspiration and innovation, the libraries of the Goethe-Institutes link Germany and the world.

Modern Life
Graphic Travelogues

From minimalist sketches to detailed images, from autobiographical stories to historical narratives: Our comic-strip artists are divers. We introduce their graphic novels and the artists who create them.


How does the new come into the world? We celebrate the error and its innovative power: the most beautiful small and big mistakes in art, language, technology and society.
