Das Land der Dichter und Denker (the country of poets and thinkers) has a remarkable culture that dates back to the beginning of German and not the country. Today I want to stress the Dichter part of that statement.
When visiting a country it is important to be aware of the culture to be able to speak to the heart.
With its positive artistic influence on the world there definitely is something we can learn from the Germans. The German culture have made great contributions to the world of art.
Germany and Music
Germans have had a great influence on music through the years. Classical composers made great contributions to the world of art. Some of the modern musicians have also shaped the world of music tremendously.
Germany hosts a lot of music festivals throughout the year and some of them are of the largest in the world.
One of my friends recently visited Germany and she confessed of the Magical German Music.
I don’t know about you, but this only is enough to get me in Germany.
Germany and the Visual Arts
Visual arts have been a great part of the German culture all over the years and some of the greatest artists this world had ever seen came form Germany.
Before world war two German architects were pioneers in their fields, but the Nazis counter worked this. Some of these German structures still do exist, but nowadays new German structures do not set new standards. It rather is international styles.
Germans have shown us that live can have new meaning through art. If we simply could have a mere understanding for that we might have a better comprehension for what our world is.
I suppose one can’t summarize a diverse nation like that with a single idea, but we can get a clearer picture if them by looking at a single aspect at a time.
Tell me what you think of German art!
