Supporters’ Circle of the IAI
The Association "Förderkreis des Ibero-Amerikanischen Instituts Preußischer Kulturbesitz zu Berlin e.V." was founded in April 2000 in order to support the work of the institute. The Förderkreis has enriched the institute's cultural offerings with a variety of events, including talks about cultural and political issues, films, lectures and homages. In addition to that, the association enabled the institute to purchase rare books and expand its library collections. It has also helped finance important publications and larger events. Thanks to the association’s ongoing funding, the IAI has been able to set up the first comprehensive collection of Latin American film in Germany (IAI film collection). The Förderkreis also created a blog (www.foerderkreis-des-iai.org).
