'In 1999 Sasha Waltz started working on her three-piece choreographic cycle about the human body. In 'Korper', following up this extraordinary research, she investigates the anatomy and the physical appearance of the human being, relating her dancers‘ bodies to architecture, science, and history, searching for the origin of life, of Eros, and of sensibility. 'noBody' asks about the metaphysical existence of humanity. PART III 'noBody' questions the metaphysical existence of humanity. It addresses the absence of the body, and confronts us with feelings that our own realization of being mortal awakes in us. Without a body, what makes us human? In 'noBody' the choreographer, accompanied by twenty-five dancers, faces the challenge of rendering the non-physical visible by using the physical body itself. 'noBody' is co-produced by the Festival d’Avignon. In July 2002, the piece was performed eight times at Cour d’Honneur, Pope Palace. Its unique historical setting, together with the Mendelsohnian architecture of the Schaubuhne, was a huge influence during the development of this production'. (Includes an eight minute bonus.

'Titian’s genius and significance in European art are undisputed. Trained at the Giovanni Bellini workshop and influenced by working together with Giorgione, he came to a masterly use of colour, light and shade. His oeuvre contains everything his times demanded: drama, carnal lust, religious fervour, mythology and portraits. Didier Baussy-Oulianoff takes us to the places where the renaissance artist devised his works and worked for the most influential courts. Contemporaries of Titian’s, such as Vasari and Aretino, also get a look in and we see that, in addition to being a gifted portrait-painter, Titian was also a skilled businessman'.

'1000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented – the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting. From Hopper to Wyeth, authors trace back the growing tendency to Realism in American art that emerged after the First World War. In stark contrast to European Modernists, US artists made their nation the central theme of their work – the ‘American way of life’ with all its regional stereotypes and socio-political themes. Masterpieces such as Wood’s 'American Gothic' have become national symbols. Other featured works include Reginald Marsh - Twenty Cent Movie [1936], Edward Hopper - Nighthawks [1942], Grant Wood - American Gothic [1930], Andrew Wyeth - Christina´s World [1948] and Georgia O'Keeffe - The White Calico Flower [1931]' (Reiner E.
