Issue 2/2021 – Congratulations: 70 years Goethe-Institut

“das goethe” is the cultural magazine of the Goethe-Institut. It is published twice a year and is included in the weekly newspaper “Die Zeit”.


Congratulations: 70 years Goethe-Institut

When the Goethe-Institut began its work in 1951, the plan was for teachers from abroad to learn the German language and then teach it in their home countries. But the tasks have long since gone beyond that.


Curiosities from the Goethe-Institut’s 70 Years

  • The Bug Loredana La Rocca
    The Bug: After the fall of the Iron Curtain, the Goethe-Institut began searching for offices in Prague, finally moving into the former East German embassy. The building was still completely furnished; there was even a plastic rose on the ambassador’s desk. A cleaner gave it to Carola Bloss, the wife of the institute’s director Jochen Bloss. Later, they discovered a microphone hidden in it (see top page). “That means,” says Jochen Bloss, “when the ambassador received his guests at the round table, there was a recording device.” He still has the bugged plastic rose today.
  • The Ambassador Liberty Records
    The Ambassador: In the 1960s, the Goethe-Institut organised tours by German jazz musicians. Alongside Albert Mangelsdorff, Klaus Doldinger also went on tour across Asia in 1969. The saxophonist addressed his role as jazz ambassador on the album Doldinger – The Ambassador“. The record was presented by the Goethe-Institut with an issue of the then popular twen“. The “magazine for young adults” was considered the alternative to Bravo and is still remembered today for its many record albums. It mainly featured jazz, classical music, chansons and poetry.
  • The Roomer European Union 2014
    The Roomer: He had spent two months in Boppard. Twenty-nine years later Jorge Mario Bergoglio saw his former landlady Helma Schmidt again (then president of the European Parliament Martin Schulz had arranged the meeting in 2014). In the meantime, Bergoglio had become Pope Francis and still remembered the summer of 1985 very well when he had stayed with the Schmidts while attending a German course at the Goethe-Institut in Boppard. They kept in touch for years after that. Bergoglio’s letters were always written by hand in flawless German.
  • The Jokester picture alliance | Dieter Klar
    The Jokester: “Vulgarity” that the federal government “does not condone,” assured Chancellor Helmut Kohl in early 1987, shortly after the broadcast of Rudis Tagesschau“. In his satirical programme, Rudi Carrell had shown a segment suggesting that veiled Iranian women were throwing underwear at the Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Khomeini. The Iranian government was furious, crisis meetings were held in the Chancellery in Bonn, and the newspaper Bild ran the headline, “Carrell in mortal danger.” German diplomats were expelled and the Goethe-Institut in Tehran had to close. “Vulgarity” that the federal government “does not condone,” assured Chancellor Helmut Kohl in early 1987, shortly after the broadcast of Rudis Tagesschau“.

das goethe 1/2021 – Generations

“Generations” is a term that is difficult to define. It relates to the private sphere of family life, but also stands for the social roles of young and old – for example, when we think of climate change and the preservation of a world worth living in for the next generation.
