500th anniversary of the Reformation

Five hundred years ago, on 31 October 1517, legend has it that theology professor Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg. The posting of these theses in Wittenberg marks the beginning of the Reformation. The far reaching theological, cultural and political consequences of the Reformation make its anniversary in 2017 not only a church affair, but a central global event in cultural history.

Public Compares Notes

Mulenga Chafilwa

Mulenga Chafilwa is very well known in the Zambian Art scene. Born in 1967 he started painting at the very young age of 7 and began exhibiting professionally more than 20 years ago. In 2012 he became the chairperson of the Visual Arts Councils and has participated in various exhibitions and workshops internationally.

Day of German Unity 2017

On the 3rd of October, the German National Day, Ambassador Achim Burkart has invited to a reception at the Embassy to commemorate the reunification of the then divided Germany. The border between the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic marked the fault line between two competing ideologies during the Cold War and the reunification is therefore not only an historic day for Germany, but it also stands symbolically for the end of the division of Europe into East and West.

15th World Day against Death Penalty

Joint opinion piece of the foreign ministers of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Slovenia and Switzerland, published in the "taz" (10.10.2017)

Today, on this World Day against the Death Penalty, we reaffirm our commitment to the universal abolition of the death penalty.

We are committed to ensuring that the dignity and human rights of each individual human being are protected, not only in our own countries, not just in Europe, but throughout the world. In our view, the death penalty is symbolic of the countless violations of human rights in today's world. The death penalty has no place in the 21st century.
