GERMANY JOINS IN CANADA'S 15OTH

Canada and Germany have a lot in common: they are federations that embrace regional diversity, strategic international partners, liberal democracies to the core. With Germany @ Canada 2017, the German Embassy, the Goethe-Institut, and many partner organizations are joining Canada in celebrating 150 years of confederation with a series of events honouring the German-Canadian friendship, from the rich history of immigration to cultural collaborations to the incredible innovations spawned by transatlantic cooperation.

Germany @ Canada 2017 – Partners from Immigration to Innovation / L’Allemagne @ Canada 2017 – Partenaires: de l’immigration à l’innovation will encompass over 40 events in Toronto, Montréal, Québec City, Banff, Vancouver, Halifax and beyond.

Featured guests include German cabaret star Ute Lemper at the inaugural Vancouver Opera Festival; Berlin performance collective Rimini Protokoll opening the Festival TransAmériques in Montréal with a show involving 100 citizens. Cologne artist Cosima von Bonin makes her Canadian solo debut at Oakville Galleries with an exhibition that The New York Times called “brilliant”, and Hamburg artist collective A Wall is a Screen invites cinephiles to a guided tour and short film screenings around Québec City and Toronto’s downtown.

A program highlight will be the exhibition “Canada and Germany: Partners from Immigration to Innovation” in the International Pavilion of the National Capital Commission in Ottawa from late June through mid-July, coinciding with the Canada Day festivities. This interactive exhibition will explore the ways in which German immigrants – from the Hessian soldiers who fought in the American Revolution, to Mennonites fleeing religious persecution, to entrepreneurs seeking fame and fortune – have become an integral part of the rich Canadian fabric. It will also feature German-Canadian technological collaborations, including a hitch-hiking robot and an energy-producing device that uses brain power to wash laundry.

Rounded out with live performances, academic conferences and film screenings, Germany @ Canada 2017 will bring a dynamic sampling of contemporary German culture to Canada, while highlighting the ties that bind the two countries together.
