About this book:

From October 2018 to October 2019, the Goethe Pop Up Minneapolis Goethe in the Skyways hosted exhibitions, performances, screenings, and discussions in a vitrine-like retail space amidst an 18-kilometer-long indoor artificial gangway and pedestrian bridge network and in the frame of the “Year of German-American Friendship” initiative in 2018/19 in the US.
The publication Goethe in the Skyways is a documentation of the cultural program in and around the skyways, a reader about the architectural specificity of this unique location, as well as an insight into the idiosyncrasies and challenges of artistic exchange between two countries.

I accompanied the editor in chief on the long road of book production, from finding a publisher, graphic designers, book concept and follow up during production. More about the book can be found on the website of Goethe in the Skyways and on Spector Books website.
