Culture with a Capital C: The Intersection of Popular Culture and the Fine Arts (Germany)


On May 14, the Goethe-Institut Washington and the Bertelsmann Foundation present their new web project, The Elite and the Popular in the Arts, which opens up astonishing and provocative perspectives on how art has evolved between the tensions of the elite and the popular.

The evening begins with a short presentation of the new web project, and continues with a discussion between Princeton scholar Jan-Werner Muller and George Washington University art historian Bibiana Obler. Following the panel will be an opportunity to explore jazz with pianist Jon Ozment, the world of graphic novels with writer and publisher Bill Campbell, and craft beer culture with one of DC’s great new breweries. This will serve as an opportunity to experience firsthand examples of the elite and the popular, and how they are intertwined with culture we enjoy daily.
