What are traditional dishes of Korea? Which contemporary films enrich Korean cinema? What does traditional Korean music sound like? What exactly is “Pansori“? And how do Koreans live in Hamburg? These and other questions will be answered by a new series of events, hosted from 12 May 2015 onwards by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea, selected cultural institutions from Hamburg and the Hamburg Ministry of Culture.
Korean Life in Hamburg
Prof. Barbara Kisseler, Hamburg Minister of Culture: “Culture and arts, in particular, allow insights into an unfamiliar country. This year, the Korean Consulate General, cultural institutions form Hamburg and the Ministry of Culture would like to acquaint people with the Korean art and culture.”
The events are presented by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea, the Museum of Ethnology in Hamburg, the Frise Künstlerhaus Hamburg e.V., the German-Korean Society Hamburg e.V., the Metropolis cinema, the art gallery Melike Bilir, the Asia-Africa Institute of the University of Hamburg.
