Schwäbisch Hall - located at the intersection of the castles and chateaux country Hohenlohe in Baden-Württemberg. Ricarda HUCH said of the former free Imperial City on the Kocher River: "Nature has rocked this city, they made art." Hall - the Celtic word for salt - provides information about the establishment and growth of the city. A Solquelle rises next to the stove.
The Celts they discovered more than 2,000 years ago. Salt founded the prosperity of this city, which magnificent Zunfts and houses every year attract thousands of tourists. With its splendid baroque town hall, the market is one of the most beautiful southern Germany.
That Schwäbisch-Hall also has a reputation in German theater lovers, it owes a staircase which is without precedent in Germany. The City Council established it 464 years ago, joining the marketplace with the higher-lying St. Michael's Church.
The 54 steps to the portal of the Church are scene of free light shows every summer. Actors and directors from all over Germany take advantage of the unique backdrop to stage Theatre in the open air. Among the pieces that are listed in this summer, the "great Salzburg world theater" by Hugo von Hofmannsthal. Rehearsing during the day is before passers-by, school groups and tourists. "Schwäbisch Hall, itself a single open-air Museum of historic buildings, has taken his chance to win new friends through regular performances of free light shows."
HAP Grieshaber - Germany's most important wood engraver for decades.
In unconventional abstractions Grieshaber continues the woodcut tradition of German Expressionism: the influence of late Gothic wood engraver is unmistakable. Despite socio-political commitment, his pictures have something poetic. Grieshaber is today represented in many museums.
In his homeland, close to Reutlingen, he has settled on the slopes of the Achalm in the Swabian Alb. At the time of the dictatorship, he worked as a laborer, and he wore out newspapers; Thereafter he became professor at an Art Academy. Its environment is paradise. However, the leaves and flowers and 40 animals, with which he is surrounded, are common motifs for the ornamental root works of his woodcuts. Although he works today away from all civilization operating as a hermit on the Achalm, he takes direct proportion to the intellectual and political action in the present, ready, without the disadvantage for politically persecuted to regard personal before or.
However, a time that puts everything into question, has deeply irritated him. Asked about his strong relationship with nature and the countryside, he replies: "to speak of a landscape, absorbed today evil, always one accused, or you will be asked anyway, in a reproachful tone whether you mean a pre-world. But what do know an artist of what is called ideal world; Anyway, he is one which, for the present existence is yet no life."
"Whether the artist by his talent creates a world, a landscape, is able to summon a figure that it understood as Utopia could say who can by themselves?"
Design to a woodcut; the effect of the surface is an essential feature of his art.
Grieshaber coming from the craft. He is a trained typesetter and printer. Invention and design are always in one hand with him. Thus arises a unity and and authenticity you otherwise rarely encountered.
Years ago, he wrote: If you can print, has good comrades, type-setter, Atzer, papermakers, lithographers. We are committed all the masters of the craft. But he doubts the craft. Asked why he always prefer the woodcut, he replies: "I wonder Yes, why I take wood. I don't actually left for the craft. The craft is now reactionary. It is probably the nature in the wood, which prompted me to it again and again to feel how you feel the hand of the mother. It is probably the detour, the translation into the wood. That has influenced me, maybe too."
Woodcut is not an end in itself, but the means of achieving his pictorial sensations, medium to communicate with his fellow for Grieshaber. It's hard for him, denying his unflinching humanity despite all scepticism. And it seems, as he could not give up hope, but change the world, make more humane to leave.
German Water Ski Championships on the main in Offenbach. The number of active athletes is not big in Germany. But as a spectator sport, water skiing is needed.
