                                                            Bildhauerin Ruth Baldinger

    Bill: In this week’s show visit a Swiss artist, Ruth Baldinger whose exhibition with an interesting group of women artists Susanne Nielsen visited this summer, Ruth spoke about her sculptures, many made of stone and later made with a mixture of concrete and wire . Her sometimes serious and more recently, playful pieces are kinetic, parts of them can be rearranged by the work’s new owner.                                                                


We would like to also invite you to join us at the opening of the Sarasota opera season, where Die Fledermaus , Johann Strauss Jr’s famous light opera will begin the season on November first.

Liebe Hoerer, ich darf Ihnen heute die Schweizer Kuenstlerin Ruth Baldinger vorstellen, deren Werke ich diesen Sommer in der Naehe von Zuerich hoch ueber dem Greiffensee in einer Galerei sah und mit der ich dann eine Unterhaltung fuehrte, ueber ihren Werdegang als Bildhauerin, und ueber ihre Ideenwelt.
Dass die Ausstellung “Alte Schachteln” hiess, bedeutete viel zur Thematik, aber soll Sie nicht von der Ernsthaftigkeit der einzelnen Arbeiten aus Beton,Eisen und Holz ablenken. Sie waren alle sehens- und erfahrenswert. Ich war angetan.
Wir moechten Sie auch auf die Premiere der Sarasota Opernsaison mit der Strauss Oper Die Fledermaus aufmerksam machen, kommen Si emit wenn sie am 1.November 2013  beginnt und rufen Sie gleich fuer Karten an. www.sarasotaopera.org.

 Interview mit der Schweizer Bildhauerin Ruth Baldinger
                                           

Vor ca. fuenfundzwanzig Jahren entflammte sie, Ruth Baldinger, schweizer Kuenstlerin, fuer die Arbeit der Bildhauerrei, die sie zusammen mit einem Gefaehrten in Zimbabwe, Afrika fuer sich mit entdeckte. Inzwischen gibt es Werke nicht nur aus dem spaeter  17 Tonnen von dort in die Schweiz gebrachten Serpentin. 
                                                                 


Spielerisch und leicht geht es derzeit zu, und dass sie und ihre 8 Kolleginnen sich selbst nicht immer zu Ernst nehmen, geht aus der Ausstellung und vor allem dessen Titel hervor “Alte Schachteln”, was sich auf den Behaelter, aber auch auf den Menschen beziehen koennte. Ich sprach mit Ruth und lernte einen interessanten Menschen kennen, den ich Ihnen nun vorstellen darf.


                                     Ruth Baldinger mit einem ihrer kinetischen Werke
       
              (Unser Interview hoeren Sie im Audioteil unserer Sendung)  

 Ich darf mich noch recht herzlich fuer den Einblick in die Welt dieser Bildhauerin bedanken und ihr und ihren Kolleginnen weiterhin viel Erfolg wuenschen.

Bildschoene Nahaufnahmen, ein Gedicht an schoenen Frauen und markanten Maenner Portraits, dazwischen schoenste Armani-Fashion und sogar zwei Cheetas, die elegant und sehr symbolisch fuer die Jaeger, die menschlichen, stehen, und wie diese endlich in eine Art unbestimmte Zukunft aufbrechen. Star und Superbesetzung mit Michael Fassbender als dem Counselor, Javier Bardem wieder einmal als Zentralfigur und undurchsichtig wie er auffaellig spielt, Penelope Cruz, eine elegante und zwielichtige Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt in Cowboykluft.

- In 1787, Mozart's opera, Don Giovanni, has it's first performance in Prague.
- In 1825, we see the birth of Johann Strauss II. He was a composer of dance music, operettas, waltzes and polkas. He was known as the "Waltz King."(der Walzerkoenig)
- In 1899, we see the death of Ottmar Mergenthaler. He invented the linotype machine.
- In 1918 we see the death of Cesar Ritz. He was a restaurant and hotel owner. He opened two hotels, one in Paris and one in London, known as the Ritz Hotel.
- Also in 1918, a mutiny of German sailors ends the German Navy's portion of WWI.
- In 1920, the League of Nations makes its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

- And according to German folklore, if it rains on October 31st, St Wolfgang's Day, it is regarded as a promising good year

She speaks with Mr. Hoffmann of the museum about the exhibit filled with memorabilia from 1945 to almost present day, President Obama’s inauguration 2008.


Susanne Nielsen im Gespraech mit Generalkonsul Juergen Borsch
  Heute wollen wir noch einmal Zu dem nun schon zwei Wochen zurueckliegenden deutschen und Deutschamerikanischen Feiertagen, dem 3.10 und dem 6.10.zurueckgehen, zu ersterem hatte ich mit dem neuen Deutschen Generalkonsul in Miami Juergen Borsch ein Gespraech, das waehrend eines Handelskammertreffens stattfand. Dabei kam vieles DeutschAmerikanische zur Sprache und ich kann Ihnen damit diesen Ihren neuen Ansprechpartner ab Herbst 2013 vorstellen. Danach befassen wir uns mit einer in Bonn stattfindenden Ausstellung im Haus der Geschichte. Ich sprach mit Frau beate Fritsche, die sich diese Ausstellung angesehen hat und spaeter , als ich selbst in diesem Museum der nachkriegsgeschichte war, gab mir der pressesprecher des Museums noch eine kleine Einfuehrung in das Thema. Die Ausstellung laeuft noch bis in den Februar 2014, also noch viel Zeit , sie sich selbst einmal in Bonn anzusehen.

 NACHTRAG ZU DEM DEUTSCHEN UND DEUTSCH_AMERIKANISCHEN FEIERTAG

Nachtraeglich moechten wir allen Deutschen unter unseren Hoerern wuenschen, dass Sie einen besinnlichen deutschen Nationalfeiertag hatten, der ja am 3.Oktober feierlich begangen wurde und Tag der Wiedervereinigung Deutschlands ist. Unseren Deutsch-Amerikanern wuenschen wir, dass sie am 6.Oktober einen schoenen German-American Day gefeiert haben, dieser von Praesident Ronald Reagan 1987 wiederbelebte Tag erinnert an die zahlreichen Beitraege Deutscher und Deutschstaemmiger zur Geschichte und Errungenschaften der USA.  Ein Interview mit dem neuen General-Konsul der Bundesrepublik in Miami bringen wir Ihnen nachtraeglich zu diesem Thema, zudem hasben wir viele Ansagen zu den Florida Oktoberfesten  , die unsere Stunde ausfuellen. Freuen Sie sich also dass wir nun in Florida und vielleicht wo Sie uns hoeren auch vieles Deutsche haben.  
____________________________________________________
Der German-American Day ist ein Feiertag in den Vereinigten Staaten, der jährlich am 6. Oktober begangen wird. Der Feiertag soll an das deutsche Erbe erinnern und nimmt Bezug auf den 6. Oktober 1683, als 13 deutsche Familien, die aus Krefeld in die Nähe von Philadelphia übersiedelten, dort Germantown gründeten. Hierbei handelte es sich um die erste deutsche Siedlung in den Dreizehn Kolonien. Erstmals gefeiert wurde dieser Tag im 19. Jahrhundert, aber bedingt durch den Ersten Weltkrieg und die während dieser Zeit vorherrschende anti-deutsche Stimmung in den Vereinigten Staaten starb diese Tradition aus.

Erst 1983 wurde sie wiederbelebt, als der damalige Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten, Ronald Reagan, den 6. Oktober zum German-American Day ausrief, um den 300. Jahrestag der Immigration von Deutschen und ihrer Kultur in die Vereinigten Staaten zu feiern und zu ehren. Am 6. August 1987 bewilligte der Kongress der Vereinigten Staaten eine Resolution, die den 6. Oktober 1987 zum German-American Day erklärte. Mit der Unterzeichnung durch Präsident Reagan am 18. August wurde der Tag gesetzlich verankert. Die offizielle Verkündigung fand am 2. Oktober 1987 im Rahmen einer offiziellen Zeremonie im White House Rose Garden statt, bei der Präsident Reagan die Amerikaner dazu aufrief, den Tag mit adäquaten Zeremonien und Aktivitäten zu begehen.

                                                   Beate Fritsche und Susanne am bonner Rathaus

                 Ausstellung in BONN: The American Way. 
                             Die USA in Deutschland                                     
                                                             

21. März 2013 bis 02. Februar 2014, Dienstag - Freitag, 9.00-19.00 Uhr,Samstag, Sonntag, 10.00-18.00 Uhr, Eintritt frei
Vom "Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten" bis zu "Ami go home": Die USA wecken bei uns Deutschen Emotionen und polarisieren. Die Geschichte Deutschlands nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg ist ohne den Einfluss der Vereinigten Staaten in vielen Bereichen nur schwer vorstellbar. Dieser besonderen Beziehung widmet sich die Ausstellung mit rund 1.000 Exponaten und zahlreichen Medienstationen. Anhand der zentralen Felder Sicherheitspolitik, Wirtschaft und (Alltags-)Kultur zeichnet sie die deutsch-amerikanischen Beziehungen von 1945 bis in die Gegenwart nach.
                                                                               
Sieger und Besiegte
Der Bombenkrieg, die Zerstörung deutscher Städte sowie die Beschlagnahmung von Gebäuden und Industrieanlagen prägen zunächst das Amerikabild in der deutschen Bevölkerung. Im Zeichen des Kalten Kriegs vollzieht sich aber ein Wandel in der amerikanischen Deutschlandpolitik. Durch CARE-Pakete, Marshallplan und die Luftbrücke nach West-Berlin gewinnen die USA Sympathien in West-Deutschland und avancieren zur beliebten Schutzmacht.
                                                                         

Vorbild Amerika?
In den 1950er- und 1960er Jahren wird der "American Way of Life" zum Vorbild für viele Deutsche. Während Jugendliche die Musik von Bill Haley und Elvis Presley hören, begeistern sich die Erwachsenen für Einbauküchen und Hollywoodschaukeln. Wenige Jahre später demonstriert die Studentenbewegung gegen vermeintlichen "US-Imperialismus" und den Krieg in Vietnam. Millionen Bundesbürger gehen zu Beginn der 1980er Jahre auf die Straße: Sie protestieren gegen die Stationierung neuer amerikanischer Mittelstreckenraketen.
                                                                         

Feindesland und Sehnsuchtsort
Auf der anderen Seite des "Eisernen Vorhangs" betreibt das SED-Regime massive antiamerikanische Propaganda und versucht, westliche Einflüsse auf die Bevölkerung zu unterbinden. Dennoch sind die Vereinigten Staaten für viele Ostdeutsche Projektionsfläche ihrer Sehnsüchte und Träume: Amerikanische Rock- und Popmusik begeistert die Jugend in der DDR; amerikanische Konsumgüter sind begehrte Waren und Geschenke im Land des "real existierenden Sozialismus".
                                                                                   

Gemeinsam vor globalen Herausforderungen
Die Bedeutung der atlantischen Partnerschaft wird bei der Wiedervereinigung deutlich: Die USA unterstützen bereits 1989 den Einigungsprozess. Nach dem Ende des Kalten Kriegs entstehen neue globale Probleme. Die Terroranschläge vom 11. September 2001 lösen Fassungslosigkeit aus. Die Bundesrepublik entsendet Soldaten nach Afghanistan, um die amerikanischen Truppen im "Krieg gegen den Terror" zu unterstützen. Aber der folgende Krieg gegen den Irak wird zur Belastungsprobe der gemeinsamen Beziehungen. Die USA sind im Zeitalter der Globalisierung zunehmend auch wirtschaftlicher Konkurrent, die amerikanische Bankenkrise hat erhebliche Auswirkungen auf die Volkswirtschaften in Europa. Wie sich die deutsch-amerikanischen Beziehungen vor dem Hintergrund der globalen Herausforderungen weiter entwickeln werden, ist noch nicht abzusehen. Trotz aller Verstimmungen bleibt Amerika mit seiner Musik, mit Filmen, Medien und Produkten weiterhin im Alltag der Bundesbürger präsent.

Kino and more Kultur: 
Captain Philips, ein sehr nahe an der Realitaet gedrehter Film ueber einen Tanker, der an Somali Piraten fiel. Acht Tage war Kapitaen Philips ( der heute wieder zur See faehrt) in der gewalt seiner Kidnapper, mit der dramatischen Musik Hans Zimmers genial aufbereitet, man sitzt gespannt da und "ist dabei", hautnah!
Kinderfilme regnet es heute, mal wieder Fleischbaellchen, nicht ganz so spannend wie beim erstenmal, aber das hatte ich auch schon bei Monsters Inc gesagt.
 Na, was da wohl alles abgeht,wenn michael Doug;as und seine kollegen , die nun alle das rentenalter auch vom Aussehen her erreicht haben, anstellen, kann man sich denken, dass sie Spass dabei haben ist klar. Ihnen dann auch viel Spass bei diesem Film. Gesehen haben wir ihn noch nicht.
Hanna Arendt ist in den Kunstkinos vertreten, eine interessante Frau, die ihr Ziel nie aus den Augen liess, ein deutscher Film, sehenswert!
Rush, wo er Niki Lauda spielt, nun noch den fast partner des immernoch in der Botschaft von Ecuador in london lebenden Julian Assange, dem gruender von Wikileaks,
es gibt hier noch einen Dokumentarfilm "Die, die geheimnisse stehlen" zum gleichen Thema, der noch spannender sein soll. Auf Spanisch, was schoener ist als die beiden sehr deutschen Akzente, ist er in  Sieben Tage Havana zu sehen: Daniel Bruehl!
