German Embassy New Delhi & Jawaharlal Nehru University present ‘Cultural Worlds – Kulturwelten’

The German Embassy and Jawaharlal Nehru University organized an exhibition “Cultural Worlds – Kulturwelten” in the Jawaharlal Nehru University, which was launched by Ambassador Dr Martin Ney, Jagdeesh Kumar, Vice Chancellor, JNU and Ratish Nanda, CEO of Aga-Khan Trust for Culture, on 11th February 2016.

“The Conservation of Cultural Heritage, as paradoxical as it may sound, is always an investment in the future,” said Ambassador Dr Ney. 

The exhibition highlighted the commitment of the German Federal Foreign Office to the Preservation of Cultural Heritage on the basis of 13 representative projects in Afghanistan, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Iran, Laos, Mali, Morocco, Mongolia, Myanmar, Palestine and Syria.

It was based on a publication, which displays the projects of the Cultural Heritage Conservation Programme of the German Foreign Office.

In recent years, the German Embassy has funded several prestigious projects in India under the programme, for e.g. Queen’s Palace in Jodhpur, the Arab Ki Serai Gateway on the grounds of Humayun’s Tomb and Chausath Khamba in the Nizamuddin Basti, which were included in the exhibition.
