UPDATE:

With great regret we inform you that the Karthaus course planned for September 2020 has to be cancelled. We have discussed the situation with the teaching staff, and all agreed that there is no way around it. There are too many uncertainties concerning the development of the covid-19 crisis, especially with regard to international travel.

We sincerely hope that the next Karthaus course will be in September 2021, in a world that is in a better shape and in which we can move more freely again!
