Every Picture Tells A Story.

2012 / November 2012

Germany’s arts and culture scene is full of vim and vigour. The famous ‘Made in Germany’ label has evolved into a ‘created in Germany’ brand. Don’t worry though! Germany still has its lederhosen, quaint medieval towns and brass-band music. But now there’s a new and exciting dimension to discover.

Art as an expression of individualism has become a feature of public space. It can be seen, felt and experienced everywhere in Germany. In the towns and cities, design-led modern architecture shows that urban living and nature are no longer contradictions as was once thought. remarkable exhibitions bring to life the works of ancient and contemporary artists. In 2013 you can see Egyptian art from the days of Nefertiti in Berlin and discover a new side to yoko ono at Frankfurt’s schirn gallery.

Fashion fulfils a basic need for variation and change. For fitting in – or, of course, for standing out. up-and-coming designers throughout Germany are finding new ways to combine upmarket casual looks with urban flair (and just the right amount of craziness) – and that’s what makes them typically German. A signature style is emerging, influenced by designers from all over the world. there’s no better place to experience this than at Berlin Fashion Week, a flagship international fashion event returning to the German capital in July 2013.

Cuisine is a culture unto itself – gourmet cuisine elevates it to an art form for the senses. two of the world’s 50 best chefs call Germany home. Embark on a culinary journey of discovery around modernday Germany, where international influences add spice to regional traditions and every mouthful offers a new experience. German gourmet cuisine is food at its best.

Music affects everybody differently, depending on their mood, their upbringing and what the atmosphere is like. Festivals and concerts are not just about the music, of course. the more authentic the venue, the better it will sound. Celebrations for the 200th anniversary of richard Wagner’s birth in 2013 promise to be an extravaganza of aural pleasures in the places where he lived and worked. ‘Wagner goes rap’, a short-film competition and a Wagner congress are among the highlights in a programme offering new and surprising perspectives on one of Germany’s best-known composers.
