Arts 21 Series: CrossCurrents

Discover culture. Germany is becoming a crossroads for the creative scene of the 21st century. The world is watching to see what's taking shape in Berlin and beyond.

This edition of Arts 21 features the treasures of the German Hygiene Museum in Dresden; the world's largest wall-painting -- on a high-rise apartment building in Berlin; a German-made film that provides us with a closer look at the musical subcultures of Myanmar; and a new episode in our series "Cross Currents" -- a profile of Indian photographer Dayanita Singh.


More Than Enough Wealth

American billionaire J. Paul Getty was reportedly reluctant to talk about money. His approach certainly does not apply to the new exhibition at the German Hygiene Museum in Dresden, where people DO talk about wealth -- in creative and often sarcastic ways. The exhibition is entitled: "Wealth -- More Than Enough." Its central element is a luxurious cruise ship dubbed the "MS German Wealth."

Arts 21 Series: CrossCurrents

She is a pioneer of Indian photography, and her vision exceeds her cultural heritage. Dayanita Singh considers photography her ticket to freedom - one that gave her the opportunity to to do what she wants and to travel wherever she wants. This year, Singh is one of four artists who exhibit their work at the German pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

The World's Largest Wall Painting

French art group Cité Création have been producing image-boosting illusions for years. They’ve brightened up drab high-rise buildings everywhere from Lyon to Quebec City, and Shanghai. Now, they've applied their skills and talents to a apartment house in Berlin. It's the biggest wall painting in the world, and it covers 22,000 square meters.

Yangon Calling: Subculture In Myanmar

Punk is alive and well -- at least in Myanmar. Documentary film-makers Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke attended punk concerts, met Burmese hip-hop pioneers and met the country's first "girl group." Their film "Yangon Calling" offers an intriguing insight into a country that is only now emerging from decades of cultural and political isolation.
