About us

The Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut (IAI, Ibero-American Institute) is an interdisciplinary center for academic and cultural exchange between Germany and Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal. It is home to the largest specialist library in Europe for the Ibero-American region. It is also a place of knowledge production, exchange and cultural translation. Combining an information center, a research center and a cultural center, the IAI is both a platform for cooperation and a catalyst for intercultural and transcultural dialog. The IAI was founded in 1930 and is today located in the Berlin Kulturforum complex on Potsdamer Strasse. It has been part of the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz (Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation) since 1962.

Products & Services

The Ibero-American Institute (IAI) publishes a diverse range of books and journals in German, Spanish, Portuguese and English. These publications draw on a variety of sources: the institute's research activities, conferences and symposia; its cooperative projects with research institutes in Germany and abroad; and the outstanding work of individual scholars. The IAI promotes the concept of Open Access and makes available via the Internet as many of its publications as possible in full text. This is realized with our Institutional Repository. The Bibliotheca Ibero-Americana and Biblioteca Luso-Brasileira series feature monographs and collections on the literature, language, history, economies and politics of Latin America, Spain and Portugal. The monographs and essay collections in the Estudios Indiana series present the results of research into the indigenous and multiethnic societies and cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean, both past and present.

Book "Open Scriptures: Notation in Contemporary Artistic Practices in Europe and the Americas. González Aktories, Susana and Susanne Klengel (eds.)

Numerous artists and theorists since the early 20th century have approached notation with the idea of analysing the accompanying practices of writing, inscription and projection. The essays compiled here weave a multilateral and interdisciplinary dialogue between academics, creators and agents from Europe and Latin America that, while largely based on literature and music, go beyond disciplinary spheres, proposing ways to further explore the intermedial richness of notation.

Book Fotografías históricas de México y de Guatemala Frank Stephan Kohl (Hrsg.); Gregor Wolff (eds.)

Teobert Maler (1842-1917) is considered one of the most important expedition photographers of the 19th century. Between 1886 and 1910 he discovered and documented numerous Mayan ruins in the Yucatan Peninsula, which belongs to Mexico, and in the Peten region of Guatemala. Maler's 3,000 photographs, including unpublished original glass negatives from the holdings of the Ibero-American Institute, have been digitized and made available to researchers and the public.
