Welcome to HMKV's blog.

This blog currently documents a research trip to twelve former Soviet Republics for a new regional project of the Goethe-Institut (2015-17). Earlier entries document the "Afro-Tech and the Future of (Re-)Invention" research trip to Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria (10-25 April 2014, Anne Bergner and Inke Arns), and the INDUSTRIAL on Tour trip to five industrial cities in Poland (27 Sep - 9 Oct 2011, Thibaut de Ruyter, Inke Arns et al.)

Warm welcome at Goethe-Institut Nairobi

Today we met with Dr. Nina Wichmann, Franziska Lukas and Annette Klein. Great team! (from left to right: Anne Bergner, Franziska Lukas and Inke Arns at the Goethe-Institut Nairobi - thanks to Annette Klein for taking this picture!) -- Mind you, Anne and I only slept one hour the night before. And it does not show! Well, almost.
