For almost 190 years, Bertelsmann has offered authors and artists a platform for producing creative content and making it accessible to a wide audience. These creative achievements have entertained millions of people all over the world, and some of them have become timeless classics and milestones of media history. Partly because of its own long history, Bertelsmann is aware of the importance of preserving such works, and long ago started engaging in cultural activities at various levels. All initiatives are closely related to the content, company (hi)stories or the cultural impact of its businesses and are developed from within the company.
In this way, Bertelsmann combines its own publishing tradition with the requirements for managing our cultural heritage in the Digital Age. Over the past few years, the company has developed its own unique profile that is synonymous with cultural diversity, creative staging, and an appropriate approach to cultural assets.
We are pleased to present our initiatives on the following pages.
