Arts.21's new series "Traces of the Past" looks at what remains of German-Jewish cultural heritage around the globe. Also on the show, we visit Regensburg Cathedral and two exciting exhibitions: one in Munich, devoted to the record label ECM; and the other in Frankfurt which shows that privacy is a vanishing value.
For our new series, "Traces of the Past", Arts.21 travels the globe looking for remnants of German-Jewish cultural life. In ten countries we find people who left Nazi Germany and meet their descendants, some of whom are writers, artists and filmmakers. Join us as we visit Argentina, the US, Turkey, China and other lands in search of German-Jewish cultural heritage.
Music journalists have dubbed ECM's music the "nicest sound after silence". Now Munich's Haus der Kunst museum has devoted an exhibition to this record label, known for its faithful renditions and crystal clear sound quality.
Never before has Regensburg's cathedral been documented and photographed in such detail. An 800-page book of photographs has been published, showing the mythical creatures, monsters and satirical representations of church officials which adorn the building. Catch a glimpse of figures that can't be seen from the ground.
Whether it's our favorite recipe, home videos or our current relationship status, an exhibition in Frankfurt entitled "Privacy" shows how we're revealing ever more about ourselves online. And offline, surveillance cameras and full body scanners expose things about us we might prefer to keep concealed.
