and not allow the government to do such an excessive act of deprecation ok now you've also been working on some major social and economic cases can you fill us in a bit on that i think if your reporter earlier it was mentioned that the right to food gives was one of our last markets and that was an incredible case because a single organisation. people's union for civil liberties with the human rights laws as its lawyers for tickets on behalf of four hundred fifty million people. would be brought to subsidize green shoots court orders to such a large section of the indian population living below the poverty line that medieval need in all the schools was started after the supreme god intervened it made a series of borders the right to food statute and the right to work structuring keyed in in india because of the work in the supreme court and the orders of the supreme
court so it's quite a remarkable thing that you could have a court making an order in a single case on behalf of such a large section of people we've also fight cases on that victims that is to see big big men who are attacked with acid by men who have been rejected as goes on to speak and then a large number is the country which are going to be going on and you also find it gives them. treat hundred thousand farmers have committed suicide in the country you do lack of resources that was calling and solve as one of the winners of this year's right livelihood award speaking with me earlier now to some of the other stories making the news today police in israel say a palestinian gunman has killed pretty israeli security officers or jewish settlement between israel and the occupied west bank. when others really was
critically injured by the gunman who shot that scene. to north korean foreign minister rio ho says that u.s. president donald trump has declared war on his country that have to the president tweeted that north korea would be around much longer the white house's claims it is a war with north korea are absurd. to blunt iraqi kurds who are on the streets of erbil on monday celebrating historic vote for the pearl independence from iraq the outcome of the referendum will likely be yes when official results are revealed later in the week now that despite heavy international pressure especially from the u.n. and the united states both oppose and. turning now to the fallout from the german election on the back of faces a tough task as she sets out to form a new governing coalition she's most likely to link up with the pro-business f.d.p.
the free democrats and the environmentalists greens two parties very far apart on central issues now here in germany is being called a jamaica coalition will ask our political correspondent what that means for germany's future first let's take a look at this report to find out how to make or actually the colors in its flag fit into german politics. they now are to stay cool in jamaica black yellow and green are the colors of the flag in germany these colors represent the most likely incoming coalition conservative c.d.u. the greens in the pro market f.t.p. people here on quite as cool as in the caribbean. but germany can be colorful to a floral bouquet for the chancellor despite the hammering the virtues gave her c.d.u. i'm going to merkel is still in charge and it's down to her to form a new coalition. her first pool is on the greens and the free
democrats. but what about the f.t.p. in jamaica judging by the colors of the times the party chiefs may be open to the idea. but they won't join forces with merkel without a revamp of education and business policies and the digital drive. we want to redirect politics reaching a new turning point and if that's not possible then place is in the opposition. opposites you want. to make a won't happen without the greens they scored better in the election than they did for years and going into coalition talks they know what they want. a lot about. we want a clear signal concerning climate protection we need to see a turnaround in this direction germany has set a clear goal to reduce c o two emissions. to make in germany the cd used to variances to party g c s you will need to be on board they might be hard to
persuade says research analyst nico siegel but it's not impossible that we ought of course it depends on how the c.s. using included in the package could become a problem there's also the question of how many concessions the f.d.p. is willing to make as far as the voters are concerned there are no hurdles that come to be zero the cuts kind of in. jamaica after all it's very likely but first they need to be some serious talks held with german thoroughness and that will probably take at least a few weeks. so some tough negotiations ahead for all america talk about that i'm joined by our political correspondent. and she couldn't talk about two more diametrically opposed parties the greens and the free democrats will be able to pull everyone together or we all all know that i'm going to marco is very good at tough negotiations she's been through quite a lot of those in her twelve years in government here and before that of course as
well so there is every chance that she can make it but there are very large differences to be overcome the greens have based their whole campaign this election campaign on their desire to return into government so they are quite eager to do this the free democrats the market girls are a little bit more cagey about it a little bit more reticent about it. and there are major differences between these parties those are clear and have already become clear in the last couple of days there is some interest on all sides for this to work out it will take a long time if we have a new government by christmas everyone will be satisfied ok what about the winners for third place and. need to become the third most strong as political party this year d.d. and immigration alternative for germany they're currently meeting here in berlin yesterday one of their top politicians patriots split with the party leadership can you tell us about that because she's one of the co-chairs of the party in really top leadership she's been isolated in the party for
a while and she decided yesterday very surprisingly and without telling her colleagues that she's going to enter parliament but not as part of the group she's going to do this on her own presumably in the hope of bringing along some of the what she calls more moderate members of her party to form some sort of additional group in parliament but effective for you that is a split will lead to a split of that far right wing populist party just before just as they are entering parliament for the first time on october twenty fourth that's the date for them right brian thanks very much for those insights this morning. and thank you for being with us here live from berlin don't forget there's plenty more to our website that's w dot com for now though for me brian thomas in the entire news team thanks so much for being with us.
the. stories that people the world over information they provide the opinions they want to express d.w. on facebook and twitter up to date and in touch follow us. on the world and on and. on and. is a worker artist and the white overalls are his signature uniform when he's preparing a new exhibition in his dissent off studio. as an international artist based in the
city on the rhine among many other awards he received on the state prize of north rhine-westphalia at the age of eighty five. that we. have blurred them with the. help. and. most recently the artist has been taking poems by the fourteenth century persian poet hafez and translating them into shape and color but he still works with tremendous intensity. you know understood. you mustn't see the whole thing just the next thing and then you get into a kind of groove. in the way i work it sometimes seems impossible to finish something if i have to interrupt it that i always see the joy if i start again the next day it's terribly hard for me to get over the break so i work through the night. language and writing have always fascinated him.
with good. but what really made world famous was nails. he discovered the nail as a means of artistic expression almost sixty years ago. but . these are also very important acts of willpower like doing hard physical labor such as planting failed so i called my fields because of my background in farming and these are all process is that a very deep inside me and that's manically forced me to act. hand. and so i act to liberate myself from this pressure and the just to put something into the picture. something that is unfamiliar and which then reveals itself to me
in an internal dialogue. were no injury is made with a hammer says citing the russian poet vladimir mayakovsky. is a prolific artist and a complete catalogue of his works is still being compiled. again and again nails. the. dark of the nile has a strong impertinence. just as you can say. pointedly feel like. that's bad behavior. and i shouldn't be here at your nose with your finger either but that's what it is it's an insistence which i make
use of but it's also coupled with a very strong potential for aggression which is also present in me. shuns any sense of ease in our his work terror orchestra from one thousand nine hundred eighty eight is a deliberate acoustic impertinence. around thirty bits of every day equipment disturbed irritate and make a dent. i discuss in my no i've always made use of everything around me like banging on pots and pans when i was a child then just stuff that was around me. stuff from moving house or standing around in the studio like i'm buying these things and then it just runs ryan's.
but there is also the quiet. introverted contemplate. sendmail dating back to one nine hundred seventy is a quiet work. a momento mori an allegory of the relentless trickling away of a lifetime. knotted ropes draw patterns in the sand an extra bleed digging tracks like a whip on the skin. unlike other artists doesn't have a permanent gallery. his wife christina is responsible for the organization behind the art. their son jack up occasionally gets involved to the bookers work as
a family. grew up on the baltic peninsula was told i'm a simple farm boy who discovered art for himself he says. this is where he spent his childhood at the end of the war in one thousand nine hundred forty five the red army occupied the island he was fifteen the boy tried to protect his mother and sisters from the advancing soviet troops. who have a year all of. you in the. i nailed up the front door from the inside not even considering that we wouldn't be able to get out again ourselves. than it was just a panic and instinctive act of defense and at the same time creating protection. so so in that case it was for my two sisters and my mother.
and other for on and for other women who turned up later and there were quite a few of them. that influenced me and i can say now it was perhaps a key experience for my later artistic activities and right up until today. with. is the place of his memories memories of the father who beat him because he was constantly drawing of his youth in east germany where he learned to place art at the service of the communist party and of nature whose rhythms he loved and feared . it is a victory with theo this interrelating ship is a great emotion that is in me one which sometimes appears as melancholy and sometimes as joy and jubilation and breathing the expanses my god i'm alive
and when i heard it it live. today is a deserted island to which regularly returned in communist east germany it was a military town and even now the place is uninhabited. only can work here. is overgrown it's a jungle here i've staked a painting into the ground ground of my childhood so to speak. and to mark a beginning this is where i want to get just like i did when i was a young boy. and so i have spiked a watercolor or two to the shores of the arctic sea. i have driven with something
into the ground which means a certain attachment and i feel connected to this. attached to it this is still a visual artistic exaggeration of my feeling. this place is full of the magic that surrounds me and i'm not able to express it in language. it makes me blind. you guys think i am but my intellectual home is language and the career that i have had. it's also the places where i started and where i also live today. and. that is an employer. but this early experience of walking a barefoot across the fields of leading the horse is an experience of this wind and the elements here. this is like
a primeval landscape. scandinavia it has the same crime it and this is something that i can now. embrace that i can breathe then. really fills me with great happiness that i can come back. for more than thirty years that was impossible after the failed uprising of june one thousand nine hundred fifty three he left east germany at the age of twenty four he set off for the west he went to the disorder. and slept on a mattress on the ground because he had no money his dream was to study with. this teacher. in the g.d.r. i had once held a sheet of paper on which he had printed a picture like a woodcut after years of breaking a rifle over his name. he was an anti fascist and had been banned from
painting. banned from painting was the highest privilege there was. he had both and he also had a leftist attitude that came close to mine since i was dialectically influenced by dialectical materialism with me he was a decent man and also an artist which i greatly respect even today but he was also very decent to me when i approached him all along. later i met her his wife. on sunday she would sometimes bake a cake with chocolate and light. google have. that that was very comforting because our sleeping rough was down and out at that time. after studying with puncak the young graduate quickly gained a foothold in the art scene.
he developed his own style and the nail became a decisive factor in his artistic vision. in the late one nine hundred fifty s. zero shook up the rhineland art scene and it was a group of artists in west germany who experimented with light air and white paint and wanted to create an entirely new type of art booker joined the group in one thousand nine hundred eighty one alpha male who was one of the most progressive gallery owners at that time exhibited his work. with zero disbanded six years later ochre went his own artistic way.
you will. hear the wind moves the sand around the sand automatically shapes itself through the influence of when people hear the. voice the sound is used here as a medium to make their state of motion visible yet it. is a feeling that the wind is an invisible factor that takes on the weight of the sand . and thereby makes itself noticeable this is this it must begin with. the. opens if this be to speak or one critic said seem to want to free himself from the image of the nail artist even at the risk of lowering his market value but the focal point of the exhibition was an object from an earlier face a giant nail in two parts.
this one was going to go has taken his art out into the work exhibiting in over fifty seven countries he seeks dialogue everywhere and gets inspiration from what is foreign to him. that he could. endure couldn't the soul. this is about a not to be found where they are not but rather outside it or through artistic means i try am able to use i can for example express my individual perception. my shock my stance and face up to it. it is a cipher of shock of compassion a cipher of being and rebellion. and it excites me. just for art's sake has never interested me says he needs the experiences he
encounters and he longs for landscapes and communication with other cultures. he particularly likes to go to places where society is in evil such as vietnam in the one nine hundred ninety s. when. i wanted to come into contact with the people so i like to go to vietnam to hanoi. i worked with students there and did sculptures addressing the theme of injury. probably the only form of expression that shows our common ground. over. them is so this place i built in vietnam was a reminder of the traps the villages used to defend themselves. if.
you had. nailed prayer benches from buddhist temples on to a structure of bamboo pole and connected everything with rags matching the cow. the vietnamese flag. is a thing it. all these things that are at home the traditions of their buddhist culture all these objects brought together the warlike as well as the religious. but the dialogue hopes for doesn't always happen the art students in hanoi responded cautiously to the offer from their european guest. and yet it can be an impulse a starting point. can make
a difference by being useful. so there tensile or two. to poke around in reality to open up a conversation. even if stammering. or touching and bringing people closer together. that's what i'm actually getting at from my own experience of solitude. i don't many cases my inability to express linguistically what has shaken me. to bring with me. and of course i have the ability to use images to create something that cannot be overlooked. in the best cases that leads to a dialogue. more isn't possible for. a decade earlier in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight had exhibited in moscow
it was the first exhibition by a contemporary artist from the west in what was still the soviet union it was a major event with eight hundred works it was possible because the soviet union wanted to establish cultural relations with the west. the west german foreign ministry paved the way. art during perestroika was an expression of change. and challenging and provocative works like these where new to people in moscow. to see the works of a man who put himself in the tradition of the russian constructivists the russian public was willing to line up for half
a day outside the exhibition building. in the early one nine hundred ninety s. booker created a group of works called man's inhumanity prompted by growing violence against foreigners in germany. with his art protested against it taking a stand. based on the christian stations of the cross the artist created fourteen sculptures about aggression injury and destruction but also about forging connections. the violence committed against others is central to his artistic. art as an expression of outrage.
supported by germany's institute for foreign cultural relations booker travel with this series of works. the exhibition was to spend more than twenty years on the road. from rio de janeiro to brought us mama belgrade taipei and tokyo. from jakarta via new delhi and cairo to baquba kent and tehran. is. a lie i didn't intend it as an art exhibition but as a stand against the injury of man by man. using artistic means.
starting point was there. i wanted to create an atmosphere similar to the countryside in the autumn when the first snow of the instruments of torture such as plows and harrow stand idle on the plowed field that has finally come to rest after being exploited by men for fertility. it creates a sort of melancholy white feeling of pollination.
