"Occupy Wall Street!" Philosopher and cultural critic Slavoj Žižek tells us why he thinks slogans like these don't go far enough. Also, to kick off the new year, we launch our new series, "The Class of 2012." What ideas are inspiring today's German art students? Finally, we speak with a very interesting theater director, and pay a visit to an environmentally-friendly museum in Frankfurt.
Call to Protest: Slavoj Žižek urges renewed resistance
Slavoj Žižek is regarded as one of the ideological pioneers of the Occupy movement, but he says its demands don't go far enough. Žižek sees no future for capitalism and is calling for a radical break with the past in favor of a new social order.
The Class of 2012: Our new ARTS.21 series
They're young and idealistic, they're the next generation in the arts: the students of the "Class of 2012." We traveled across Germany to speak with the up-and-coming creative talent in Germany, including dancers, pop musicians, writers, and more.
Star of the Stage: Theater director Jette Steckel
She's only 29 years old, the mother of a young child, and the daughter of a famous father - and she's already been chosen the young director of the year. Jette Steckel has worked at many of the major venues, from the Deutsches Theater in Berlin to the Thalia in Hamburg.
"The Eye of the Architect": The new Städel Museum in Frankfurt
The Städel Museum was bursting at the seams. Now it has a new extension - a subterranean wing beneath the grassy mound in the courtyard. By day, skylights direct light into the interior, while by night, they lend the garden a mysterious glow.
and our regular weekly RADAR feature: Cultural Discoveries of the Week
