Politics, Glamour and the Arts – Europe in the Spring


It’s Europe’s wedding of the year! On 29 April,
the heir to the British throne Prince William
and his fiancée Kate Middleton are due to ex-
change their marriage vows. The ceremony
will take place at London’s Westminster Ab-
bey. The church will host a glittering gather-
ing of European aristocracy and VIPs from all
over the world. The Archbishop of Canterbury
Rowan Williams will preside over the service.
After the marriage ceremony, the newly-weds
will be transported by carriage to Bucking-
ham Palace. The route leads from Westmin-
ster Abbey through the government quarter of
Whitehall and then along the magnificent Mall
to the palace. Crowds of fans of the royal family

The exhibition “The Art of The Enlightenment” is due to open on 1 April at the
National Museum of China in Beijing. It’s the largest exhibition on European art
of the Enlightenment ever to be shown in Asia. The Berlin State Museums, the
Dresden State Art Collections and the Bavarian State Painting Collections in Mu-
nich are joining forces to present more than 450 exhibits – including world-famous
masterpieces. Following its reconstruction by the Hamburg architectural firm von
Gerkan, Marg and Partners, the National Museum of China is now the largest mu-
seum building in the world. It looms majestically over Tiananmen Square – directly
opposite the Great Hall of the People. The exhibition, which receives substantial
funding from the German Foreign Office, is not just a spectacular art event. It also
carries considerable political significance as the first international guest exhibition
in the reopened National Museum. Arts.21 reports on the opening. Prince William and Kate Middleton Photo: AP

Me and My iPhone
Philipp Riederle is Germany’s most successful video podcaster. Every year,
up to a million people download his video operating instructions for the
Apple products iPhone and iPad. In seemingly no time at all, the 16-year-old
student with his blog “Me and My iPhone” has become a sought-after source
of advice for the Apple fan community. His weekly podcasts are especially
popular with the over 50s, for their clear and simple explanations of all the
cult products’ functions. These days, the schoolboy from the small town of
Burgau in Swabia is even invited by big companies such as Telekom and
Universal to hold lectures on the communication habits of his generation,
the “digital natives.” The podcasts are so successful that what began life as a
hobby in the cellar of his parents’ house has since become a small company.
Riederle talks about this and much more on Talking Germany. Inger Nilsson as “Pippi Longstocking” Photo: dpa
