and we drove folks who are going to band through all the north african countries with their guns. not. i was always drawn to foreign countries because i had this curiosity about how other people live, think and work. and it was always worth it. yes, i'm a citizen of the world and this is the story of a sound. well, the story of the final year in the career of klaus detail a man, he has shaped the german cultural landscape of the last decades like few others with his incredible ability to grasp the right moment. he's been head of the german national library. the driving force behind these famous new history is everywhere in the capital of into the colossal independence museum tells the story of the long struggle for liberation from colonialism.
4:17 pm
and the most recent chapter of that story is all about restitution, bringing them maybe as cultural artifacts back to the country. hendrik is a case in point. the tribal leader isn't a maybe a national hero, thanks to his role in the resistance against german colonial rule at the end of the 19th century. that boy symbolic bible and whip, were taken by the germans after his death. their return was an important 1st step. it isn't just the removal of objects. it's basically the breaking of people, the personalities of their self-determination and self-confidence. this was coming along, your islam cannot be glossed over. this is simply a beginning. there's a lot more to be done yet still tired. so now is the time to get to know each other . she just talked to africans in africa about these experiences and to exchange ideas so that these stories can be told of children of limon was also in the
4:18 pm
maybe a to visit the local good to institute in the center of into it's one of 157, across the world, germany's national cultural institution is active in nearly 100 countries. with more than 3 and a half 1000 employees. its mission is to promote the german language and strengthen cultural collaboration. the team here had spent weeks preparing a major conference, the topic. what should a post colonial museum look like? the conference venue was in ca, to tura a former apartheid era township on the outskirts of into the conference was part of a long term project that brings together museum experts and creative minds from across africa. and believe me, we do leave you thinking in the 12 years he's been president of the good to institute. a man has developed good
4:19 pm
relationships with partners in africa. so there was a sense that things were coming full circle for him. his very 1st official trip was to another former german colony. flash back to 2008, layman, fresh in the job, travelled to tanzania with good news. the years of austerity were over. after a decade of being closed, they go to institute in dar es salaam would be reopened the object that others of lehman's african counterparts hoped that his special interest in the continent would live on even after he left. of course, every person who lives there is a potential gap, but hopefully that the person who comes is someone who also has a deep understanding of africa because africa is not a complex. and it's also what good a deep scars. so i hope that will protect over someone who is sensitive someone who
4:20 pm
is called city us, and someone who also has the pressures and the passion for the continent. and the colonial past was ever present in the discussions. but the conference also revealed a bright new generation coming up in the art and museum worlds. i feel a man fresh concept site digitalisation made this conference stand out. today the society in which we find ourselves in today does not agree with the principles of formal museums. so if you can't community to an audience, you don't understand, you know, you could be said, the median age of africa is 90. 4. it's really critical that we stop asking this question that who are we speaking to, how we speaking to them? what platforms are they using now it was
4:21 pm
farewell to africa. the continent that changed how close detail a man saw the world. how they will have always found it terrible that africa is only associated with negative stories. i have experienced so many positive things and i think we simply have to get them across to the good news needs to be given a chance as well. shows all that would soon come back in germany. a few weeks later, the go to institute head appeared at the frankfurt books and the world's biggest media trade fair with the book and media industry come together to network. negotiate celebrate, and debate was the perfect stage for a layman to talk about his experiences invented the saying i was expecting 300000
4:22 pm
visitors to frank, personal fear stands for freedom of expression and diversity of opinion. so it's locked down on my calendar that i build everything around the book, their dates for me, it's both a duty and a pleasure. the books also meant returning to the roots, says a man's career. how to century ago he studied physics and mathematics in this part of western germany before making the decision to devote himself to library science . it was in 1968 in frankfurt with the boom in metropolis consumption and grosser being celebrated in the new shopping streets, as well as at the stock exchange. but germany was awoken from this daydream of prosperity by voices of protest from the streets. students were rebelling against an outdated system and capitalism. the
4:23 pm
protesters sought intellectual support from the neo marxist thinkers of the so-called frankfurt school. they, however, rejected violent social revolution. was no revolutionary eyes are and the street was not his arena, but he did want to bring about change. his chance came in the form of the frankfurt city and university library. when i was $33.00, i had the privilege of becoming director of the library there. i tried to reunite the whole frankfurt school, the city's critical theory. so i brought together the literary estates and archives of laon who've been taught to make the library in frankfurt, a center of the last 15 years later in 1988, and was appointed director of the national library in frankfurt. or more precisely, the west, german half of it. the other half was in line to germany's 2 national libraries.
4:24 pm
the cold war even divided the world of good books. when i became general director of the national library in frankfurt in $88.00, i made my 1st trip to live. i didn't think it was right for us to be separate entities. but given that we were founded on common goals, we talked about that in leipsic. this group you visited at the end of the 1980 s. was in pretty rough shape for decades after the division of gemini, this once flourishing city of literature was in steep decline. as was the entire communist state, the regime was crumbling. he went there to visit the so-called memory of the nation, the german librarian like this was founded in 1912,
4:25 pm
to collect old german language publications under one roof. in the 1949 it became the central library of the workers' state. meanwhile, a western counterpart was set up in frankfurt with the same goals. then in the autumn of 1909, everything changed 1st in light. then in berlin and across the whole of east germany, hundreds of thousands took to the streets in a peaceful revolution flanked by writers like stephan haim. what a transformation. it's as if someone has opened the windows after all these years of stagnation started, not your god, the people liberated themselves from communist rule and east germany fell apart. informal talks with librarians and say, suddenly became a political mission to really, you know, fi the institution. what would become of the german library in life has been
4:26 pm
a library in there since 1974 and was part of negotiations after the wall came down . he was among those who feared that east germany would end up on the losing side every unification. of the rules we sat here in this room because he and his partner sat here at the front and i was sitting on one of the chairs at the back somewhere . i can remember it quite clearly. initially there was a brief silence. he must have been asking himself how we in life fish would react to these invaders. but it wasn't an invasion. he was pretty clear about that. he said we were working on a common plan because one of the 1st sentences i can still remember was, the greater germany that's coming into being here could certainly use a national library with 2 locations. instead of offering it was not. and frank lehmann solution safeguarded the internal unity of the national library.
4:27 pm
and march 990, we were united and we bonded in some funny ways. for example, we met halfway between live frankfurt and the city of funk. and we formed a joint soccer team. we put on a review show. in other words, we got to see the real people behind their organizational roles. that's how we built up a report. in august, 1982, german states signed the unification treaty and the crown prince's palace and the status of the new national library was made official, including its too late cation and that's when the real work began, that i'm often get picked on, and he always looked to the future and told us all along with him. and he had to tackle some difficult problems. for example, marshalling the stasi investigation and the staff cuts. but that wasn't necessarily easy. he did it with the kind of rigor you need in a leader for something like that. but he was also sympathetic. so i don't think
4:28 pm
anyone really felt hurt because that was quite an achievement. and i still traits if you like, cigs the life we direct to since 912 loads of the more civilized in oil paint on the wall opposite close detail, a man in black and white. the portrait was made by his friend, superstar photographer helmut newton. and not only marks the beginning of a new era, but was also open to interpretation as it isn't like that. so 1st of all, it's very down to worth of the 2nd, the image suggests that he is striving upwards. something like a tree of man figure. how he's deceived, also plays an important role for him. that's clear. and you can also see that he has a sense of how an image functions and how to come across well in a new ecological age.
4:29 pm
exposed concrete, steel and glass below that 3 floors, an underground deposit tree. 30000 square meters of books. frankfurt long planned new german national library building was completed in 1970 degrees. the chancellor himself attended the inauguration and what was an avid after the ceremony, he wanted to see the books. so we went into the underground stacks and we barely made it out again because cole was so fascinated walking along the shelves. they were like a chronicle of history because everything was chronologically arranged is in was a key, kept blowing out different books. i said, mr. chancellor,
4:30 pm
we should really get back to our guests. didn't interest him at all. i think we were in the stacks for 3 hours. that was call. he always had a lot of time for books. and for the library of almost 50 people ticked off. and the last election later, cole was no longer chancellor petain to power to exclude the seats of government in parliament. moved from gone to berlin and took on a new position as president of the pression cultural heritage foundation. on the threshold of the new millennium, it was germany's most important cultural role. it brought with it the chance to reshape the face of the nation's capital. with the help of a little political good. well, you know, church of your heart was
4:31 pm
a strong supporter of museum island. we didn't have to call on his. but knowing that someone saw this cultural ensemble as the intellectual center of germany was very important to us all seated in 2000 days at the age of 68 lehmann made another big career may becoming president of the institute chancellor angela merkel paid him a personal visit when he took office, it was a 1st and also a sign of the growing global significance of cultural diplomacy. one day it was important for us that the chancellor made such a clear signal. so soon after i had begun my time as her to institute director in munich, so those were my 3 encounters and they were all positive. and i'm quite an independent spirit and independence has always been important to me. i don't belong to a political party so i can always speak personally based on facts. and that probably wasn't a bad thing either. i was allowed on each list to support not only in the
4:32 pm
government but also in parliament. no, but he was then president of the bundestag. i'm one of the most experienced members of parliament because lehmann skillful balancing act between culture and politics in mind was on the way i see it. he was always there, especially when it came to german cultural policy. he doesn't compete with artists, which is something best not done in a role like that. neither does he display the at times borderline affectations of a successful manager. but rather he connects the 2 creating both internal and external consensus in the open. that's important for the image and effectiveness of institutions like this. it will be used in $2900.00 renowned german violinist, honestly much scooped, one of the world's biggest up prices, the premium imperioli awarded by the japan are to say see ation. lehmann has been
4:33 pm
an international advisor to the price for years responsible for recommending candidates. this is a violinist was his choice. it was a tightrope walk between distance and proximity. but that is more important to laymen that often takes his friendship in culture as well as in politics. the meiji came then a traditional site for formal celebrations set amongst the parks and palaces near the legendary meiji shrine. in the heart of tokyo hosted the awards ceremony though it's not city that it looks like when you're in it, i guess must be a man,
4:34 pm
was quite at home in the highly formal setting. prince and princess itachi were present on behalf of japan's imperial dynasty excellence in his distinguished years with an equivalent value of 125000 euros. it's the richest prize in the world and testament to japan's commitment to the arts. him and it was really a come presence in the middle of everything running things and giving everyone the feeling that they were the center of proceedings. in fact, it was he who was probably at the heart of us all holding the rain this winter in germany and the every day routine as they get institute at the cultural institutions headquarters near the center of munich. it's time for the so-called
4:35 pm
presidential breakfast. it's a way for a layman to ensure that internal exchanges can happen and free from a strict top down hierarchy. but that something that 50 years of leadership experience has taught him. i'm not the type to float above everyone giving orders or one president of presidential records does a good example. but there's a, it's once a month and everyone can come by. they don't have to because there's a theme which can also be decided by those attending talk together about issues of language and culture, or finance or whatever. and we part with the feeling of togetherness. but it also means that i get a sense of what ideas there are in the organization was and which of them we can make use of 500 to institute
4:36 pm
employees work in the building. an example of german post-war modernism. the architecture reflects the south image of the institution which was founded in 1951 . practicality, clear lines, transparent. say it's all more than just a facade. i really value lima. i appreciate his unequivocal belief in liberalism and the importance of civil society. his conviction that we as the go to institute play an important mediating role and his courage to be quite public about his convictions. differently to our secretary general. your highness is the manager from munich. he runs the different to institute locations in projects around the world together with commercial director. only klaus detail,
4:37 pm
a man has his own office that presidents have to go to institute is an honorary position with a focus on democracy. lehmann believes that that's more important than ever. we're seeing an over simplification of more brutality and our disagreements. and that worries me because we can only credibly represent our own institut around the world. if germany itself is in a position to correct these things. and to create a politics that's free and committed to human rights for us, racism is a dangerous threat that impacts our own credibility. that's why we also want to have a stronger presence within germany. in terms of cultural education, in the mahanta, cunto is the new landmark on bangkok skyline. you can get a great view of the city from the top man
4:38 pm
turned 80 at the end of february 2020. a few days later he was climbing up to thailand's highest viewing power from the booming southeast asian metropolis with 300 meters below him. a man's trip to the jail free. our river had been in the works for a long time. but the coronavirus threatened his plans. infection rates in thailand who are still low at the beginning of march. but fears of a pandemic were all too real. thailand's good institute was intending to celebrate its 60th anniversary with a large programme of events. when a man decided to go ahead with the visit, the director of the institute in bangkok, priest a huge sigh of relief, that the president is going to tell him. it was both overwhelming and inspiring

4:40 pm
here to bangkok and what do i see? it's a little smaller, but it has the architecture and the atmosphere of frankfurt central station. so this is a strange feeling. just like at the beginning here i am in my final year working for the go to institute. and here is frankfurt train station again. this time in bangkok, it's very emotional. but the historic waiting room was turned into a pop up concert hall. the goose instituted, invited young musicians from bangkok and cologne to perform pieces by you have sebastian and junk age. amongst other composers it was an unusual experience for the commute, his name and soaked up the atmosphere, making a journey like this under such troubling conditions wasn't merely
4:41 pm
a gut decision. it was the results of sober consideration. his good guy as president of the go to institute. there are some advance that one has to be aware of. the 60th anniversary of the bangkok institute is one of them. it's now one of the largest go to institutes in the world. and understandably expectations are placed on me or so i, so i wanted to be there in person. it also answers those asking how i am dealing with the situation. but i only let myself be affected when there are clear facts. supposition alone isn't enough for me. at the evening event partnership between the good institute and the you saw a sample from the princess academy of music was made official
4:42 pm
because beethoven's 250th anniversary was coming up. bangkok's classical music lovers and their german guests got to hear the composer's 7th symphony. thank you. thank you. thank you so stiff. the tease shows how important the dirty institute has become to cultural life in the time capital of the organization is keen to make its presence in asia. felt especially at such a critical time, the audience didn't suspects that this could be one of the last parties in bangkok for a long while. when
4:43 pm
