Jahrgang: Jahrgang 2018
Carmen Herold works for the cultural department of the Goethe-Institut China, which is the official cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany. In her practice of cultural exchange, she always employs her understanding of vastly different cultural contexts together with the theoretical contexts and aims to clarify complexity as well as bridge cultural barriers. Within the Goethe-Institut she has been assigned with projects such as the 4th and 5th edition of the Festival of German Cinema in China and a long-term project that deals with questions of social, economic and political changes brought about by new technologies such as machine learning. Prior to Carmen's work at the Goethe-Institut, she studied in Beijing for one year, where she was a fellow of the Confucius Institute and later obtained a degree in communication science in economic and social contexts with a focus on new media and digital age at the University of he Arts Berlin (UdK).
