Welsh Piano room – 8pm

Bonjour! We’re watching another French show tonight at 8pm in the piano room. Bref is only THE most successful shortcom in the past few years in France! And because I’m the best I found it with English subtitles!! Warning: it’s French humor and it can be maybe just a little bit offensive sometimes!… 😀 Episodes last 2 minutes, let’s watch a few and make it a short and sweet Language House event

The drama follows Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) as the 24 year-old East Germany native is pulled from the world as he knows it and sent to the West as an undercover spy for the Stasi foreign service. Hiding in plain sight in the West German army, he must gather the secrets of NATO military strategy. Everything is new, nothing is quite what it seems and everyone he encounters is harboring secrets, both political and personal.

German music lecture

birgit german music lectureBatza room, Athenaeum

April 14


When thinking of Germany, pop music might not be the first thing that comes to mind. In her lecture, music journalist Birgit Reuther explains how the history of the country delayed and influenced Germany’s pop culture. What music did the German post war era listen to? How did the artists in East and West Germany act differently? And what does the reunited country sound like?

Learn how it became more and more common to produce pop music in the German language and how the lyrics reflected the political and social situation of every decade. The lecture addresses whether or not pop these days affirms or criticizes the mainstream.

Birgit Reuther is an editor for the culture section of the daily newspaper Hambruger Abendblatt. Her specialties are in pop- and subculture.
