we have a special program about him coming up soon on g.w. . we begin today though with a quite unique exhibition in the netherlands one which is understandably causing a lot of controversy a museum in them bosch is looking at design from the 3rd dariush of course the most famous symbol was the swastika originally an ancient asian religious icon used as a symbol of divinity or good luck unfortunately the symbolism was ruined by the nazis what this exhibition shows is how important 3rd reich design was in promoting its evil philosophy. national socialism a murderous ideology a machine of war and a brand the nazi party was keenly aware of its public image and used architecture and art and design to strengthen its totalitarian state the swastika was the nazis most prominent logo a symbol of happiness appropriated by hitler to signify german history from
military gear to the vox fucking car nazis created a tightly regulated set of symbols that reinforced hitler's stature as the supreme leader of the german race. the folks and finding out all of the peoples receiver was sold to germans as a way to choose an internet speech is the model number one is a reference to the 30th of january the day hitler was sworn in as chancellor of germany in 1933 the nazis rejected communist and modernist in theory but appropriated both walk creating little new. there is no such thing as nancy do it's 3 or more different kinds of design is you know the classical. vary from and it's also modern and it's adopted from you know from ideas of these and that already existed and the nazis go their own meaning to it and that's of course very important and that's why you have to explain what it was all about in the thirty's
and forty's. often used architecture to impress the 136 burned in the olympics was a chance to show germany as a global force and the massive stadium was the centerpiece the stadium still stands today attracting visitors who know little about its history. its not important who will be able to it it means something different for everyone now. wondering if. my colleague said that it looks like you did i said yes it does. but yeah i don't think it's nice to look at. one of a swastika symbol has been banned in germany nazi architecture remains for all to see so do many of the products of nazi design but should such items be in an exhibition the museum says it wants to disarm the nazi legacy by confronting it head on it's still a piece of our history national socialism we're not at ease with i mean not with
the ideology it's completely evil but we should be face to face with our own history our own culture and as long as you know if it's still. or strange to us you should show it over and over again and talk about the museum hopes to show that nazi symbols have no mystical power only the meanings we ascribe to them. so you must as a concert pianist based him by lin but originally from nazareth in israel and indeed is often the busy with his galilee chamber orchestra which he conducts with he's also renowned as a beethoven specialist and i should be asking him about bats and the chamber orchestra and much more as he's my guest in just a minute after this. he was 6 years old when he 1st heard. in your right then that he had to become a pianist. salema scott was born in his round enough for us his parents were
palestinian christians. he studied in london and hunted down. under the direction of star conducted daniel barenboim that's got to be huge in new york's famous kind of keyhole. he's great passion for the works of beethoven. his frequent appearances in israel always challenging. a concert in the middle east he's always as he says more than just the concert. he concerns himself with the relationship between religion and politics and music above all he wants to use music to bring people together. and something joins me now in the studio i
welcome you 1st of all tell us a bit more about performing in israel it's it i mean it how emotional is it for you well it's emotional because there are always so many layers of meaning beyond just playing the concert if it would be here in berlin it's quite different and when i say emotional and it doesn't always just positive emotions i mean there's a lot. of baggage there's a lot of extra meaning and. already from the very beginning when i was a child it was meant for me crossing boundaries and learning music studying music was was crossing boundaries into into another world culturally linguistically. and all that comes with its soul every time i go back. there is this association of all the years and all the all the wreckage of cars yeah now
years ago you played with the west to east and divide orchestra into the past all got daniel barenboim this is made up of musicians from the middle east yes who come together in musical harmony however you have your own all the galilee chamber orchestra similar goals perhaps but slightly different similar idea but i must say quite different context in the sense that the chambre is based in. galilee and its members are people who live there next to each other but over many many years. very pair of disconnected. cultural lights and so always there's a contact points between the palestinians in israel and israel and the jews in israel this is on the most basic economic. contexts and so we believe. very strongly that there is
a place for folks who cultural. working together and coming together and finding finding out finding a life together and you recently actually took a gemini just with that just yes there was incredible it was incredible for the musicians it was extremely. invigorating for them and very meaningful for or for the young musicians to be received in such with such warmth you know we were in berlin in one over the brook. part of the ring on music festival. but more importantly i think we realized that the work means something beyond the local context. let's just pause for a 2nd and hey we haven't got a grand piano here in the studio fortunately but we can hear you play a little bit of mozart.
concerto so. it was based over music actually we have yes but to come back to your question a lot of it happens in the mind i mean i for 11 does practice with the instrument by visualising by by by thinking about music. imagining it and soul actually it's different the possible ok very we have a lot of time i just want to ask you quickly about i have because you're in why beethoven well why beethoven i don't know it just it just music that i suppose i'm not the only one by and by no means it's just grabs you it's the music that is so exist tensional so powerful so i mean whatever words i use it will seem silly because the music cannot be described as a if you just use the right words it cannot be described cannot be described but something about it just grabbed me deeply and i felt a deep sense that i want to immerse myself well enough to leave it there are
friends good luck with everything good luck especially with the galley changes i want to strike you. the most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who have never viewed the world quotations extremely relevant but it's actually one of many wise sayings from the great 19th century german explorer. is the 250th anniversary of his birth this weekend. programme about him. alexander from whom the 19th century prussian skull botanist and explorer he popularized the concept that the natural world is interconnected. cultural historian andrea wulf may know him better than anybody else even writing 2 books about the scala she sees him as the father of environmentalist and.
i think his views on how he brings together the arts and the science how he says that we need to use our imagination in our meetings. i think xmas very relevant today. andrea would spent 10 years researching him. and not only in the archives. she's in boxes on epic journey it's following in his footsteps to see what he saw and to feel what he felt when he wrote he 30000 letters. really cultivated this image of the daring adventurer he was and he was the best. publicist to machine. out a trend of one who may not have made a great discovery he didn't develop the theory of evolution but he's ideas that the
