Where: Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta, 1197 Peachtree Street, NE, Colony Square, Plaza Level, Atlanta, GA 30361
What’s it about?
In the 1950s the German Democratic Republic (GDR) built approximately a thousand “Kulturhäuser” based on the Soviet attempt to promote an anti-fascist re-education of Germans. These institutions enabled the working class to participate in a wide range of cultural events, such as concerts, exhibitions, or theatrical performances with the overall goal to create an educated workforce.
In an effort to explore the “Kulturhäuser”, Peter Goedel and Helga Storch’s documentary “‘An der Saale hellem Strande’ – Ein Kulturhaus erzählt” presents the “Haus der Freundschaft”, the former cultural center that was built in the small village of Schkopau in 1952.
So join us tonight for this fantastic exhibit opening – we look forward to seeing you there!
