the cathedral is now guaranteed to survive but will the new not look just like the old one and how quickly can it be rebuilt france now faces those tough questions but not saddam is not the first culturally significant building to burn across the atlantic just last year brazil's national museum was destroyed along with its twenty million item collection unlike with not saddam just a quarter of a million euros have been raised just one percent of the estimated rebuilding costs . for a success story though france can look to germany's eighteenth century fallen kish to the church of our lady it was bombed by the allies in one nine hundred forty five. and after two days of fire the church finally collapsed. for almost five decades east german leaders left the rubble of dresden paroch masterpiece as a reminder of the horrors of war. painstakingly

tweeting we burned but we rose from the ashes stronger than before. and of course we'll be following the continuing story of not cathedral as it develops now the german abscess lost a lot as a stein spent most of our life in sweden off to flame the nazis in the late one nine hundred thirty s. although she did pain throughout her life she only really became well known when she was about eight years old first of all by a london gallery in one thousand nine hundred seven and a few years later in her high not live in and it is here again that an exhibition is just open featuring figurative realism. there's no such thing as dabbling in painting you either paint or you don't that was the categorical stance of lot of allows us time a member of the berlin art scene in the late one nine hundred twenty s. born in eight hundred ninety eight in one thousand thirty seven she fled the nazis

and settled in sweden where she died in the early one nine hundred ninety s. having slid into obscurity her trademark was figure painting a combination of references to the great masters and a naturalistic style using earth tones her subjects are depicted intimately but with no trace of voyeurism but as a stand artistic career began at the age of eight at her aunt's painting school later she became one of the first women admitted to berlin's arts academy she continued drawing until shortly before her death as a close friend from sweden recalls. she knew who she was. and how good she was but she was not up no said nothing like that then she was. always have a sketchbook with her. she made. weeks before she got. the post war years were a difficult time for figurative painting which was considered stuffy and old

fashioned. art historian on a color color so says that's in part because we tend to equate modern art with abstraction. taman the themes that she picks up on and creates demonstrate an absolutely modern stance a woman on her own in a cafe sitting confidently and naturally not like some last creature of the night or a journalist with a glittering monocle who looks around her with interest these are all modern images of women which helps to create with her works she didn't want to present this image as something exclusive to her clique of artists but as the reality of women's lives as they left them i did i took a leap by purity of. natural ness closeness intimacy and above all a palpable sense of self-sufficiency as a stance figures never become objects unlike with the new objectivity movement that was grabbing attention at the time. the sea. and the fact that the exhibition is

called face to face is in part because the viewer really can enter into a dialogue with the people represented here with their portraits. there are wonderful examples of the russian girl. for the mongolian eyes you want to make contact but that doesn't really work and that is a refinement they can see her figure something like individuality they are fully present they have a palpable dignity that is in this damaged group. stein's major work evening over potsdam from one nine hundred thirty shows an evening meal a still life a cityscape but that's not what it's really about the focus is on the mood on the intimacy or distance between the people. with a melancholy and apprehensive atmosphere it depicts the zite geist of the one nine hundred thirty s.

as well as lots of times on credo what i do isn't modern nor is it academic it's simply very me. now for chocoholics this is the best time of year i should know i am yes jo clit easter eggs are on sale everywhere in europe but few as clos is the creations of school in rome whose inspired by great fashion designers like this one this exact designs of italian fashion house missoni. he's also done a tribute to collagen felt. and also a corset in the style of french fashion maverick. and in his shop moscow even stages fashion shows with real models in the window surrounded by his legs and the time and effort to make them reflected in the prices i'm afraid these unique easter eggs will set you back up to five hundred euro's seems

a shame so we. now there are more heavy metal musicians per capita in finland than anywhere else heavy metal is played all mainstream right. stations and that was even disturbing the quiet contemplation of church services in helsinki courtesy of a heavy metal fan who also happens to be apostolic and the lyrics the band sings really off from the hymn book but the music well it's just a little livelier than the usual organ accompaniment. the god himself could hardly help but here it's the metal mounts with a face full head bang in prayer here in helsinki's counting naki church sitting in for the organist at this loser in service is the metally mess with.
10:54 am
of course you have like a different kind of feeling for the music it's like you feel the feeding and the art chest and stuff but you have a different connection to the songs it's time so actually i don't like any in the mid thousand years but it was actually a good experience. lutheran pastor k.k. lennon has been touring finland's churches with the metal mass for over ten years he discovered heavy metal rock at the age of seven to him deep purple and black sabbath were almost a spiritual awakening. his love for god came much later take a lane and brought them together in his mental maps. of course god loves her my soul i'm sure actually it depends how we do it so because we have
10:55 am
a strong word of god and we do it for god not for us so that's why. god loves us i think so. obviously. congregations can book pastor take a line and spam to as long as they're not worried about the plaster shaking off the walls a cd of the hymns even made it into finland's top ten. the band keeps the him and melodies intact so the faithful can sing along as usual. cake alone and has held about one hundred fifty metal masses all around finland since two thousand and six. we have all only names here from the hymn book arranged in metal lyrics are very strong they need metal music they really need it
10:56 am
so that's why it's sounds wonderful together this. is music. the middle mass has provoked hardly any criticism in finland but then the country has more heavy metal bands per capita than any other country and metal can even have a therapeutic effect. i want to go i planned to. commit suicide before i in the evening and he came to us and he liked it so much so he didn't do it it was ten years ago so and he is alive now so. maybe we have a meaning. ok cologne in receives invitations from congregations the world over he's already looking forward to one day blasting his metal mass beads in churches everywhere.
10:57 am
and i've actually visited that church but when i was there it was very quiet however if you ever go to finland to go to the churches and cathedrals that they are amazing on that note we come to the end of the show happy holidays for those who have i'll be back next week with more arts and culture but for now.
