Describe the performances that you will be carrying out tomorrow during the opening of your Lyon museum exhibition.

One of them will be to change the first room of the museum when people enter; they will be surrounded by f...https://www.forbes.com/sites/yjeanmundelsalle/2018/09/19/one-of-the-greatest-french-living-artists-bernar-venet-holds-two-new-exhibitions-in-france-part-2/

Marco Reus' return to fitness a boost for Dortmund and Germany - ESPN (blog)Thursday, March 15, 2018
Bundesliga and stay in contention for a win in the Europa League.Low can consider himself well and truly blessed in any case. The Bundestrainer could have been even happier if Germany striker Timo Werner wasn't going through a lean spell at Leipzig at the moment, but Reus' excellence shone brightly enough to banish any concerns the 58-year-old might have about his attacking options. This spring, Low's enviable position is that of a man with a beautiful, varied garden: As one flower wilts, another one blossoms.http://www.espn.com/soccer/german-bundesliga/10/blog/post/3407846/marco-reus-return-fitness-boosts-borussia-dortmund-and-germany
German energy firm RWE investigates cyber attackWednesday, October 17, 2018
IT specialists to look into the matter.
In the meanwhile, police in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia have continued with their clearance operations at a highly symbolic site for activists in the Hambach.
Security authorities ordered protestors on Tuesday to remove flowers and candles commemorating a 27-year-old journalist who recently fell to his death in the forest, so that a nearby treehouse could be dismantled.
The Hambach forest forms part of a property owned by German energy giant RWE which comprises the world's largest open pit brown coal mine.
The company plans to cut down 100 out of a remaining 200 hectares of woodland from October 2018, a development which is vehemently resisted by activists who have moved into the threatened area and built treehouses and makeshift barriers there.
A member of an activist group, known as "Operation Undergrowth" told the German press agency (dpa) earlier that some forest occupiers had by now already lived in Hambach for six years.
The police operation, which was temporarily stalled following the fatal accident of the journalist, is one of the largest to be recorded in North Rhine-Westphalia to date and is supported by reinforcements from other German states.
Stillness and shock in Hambach Forest after journalist diesWednesday, October 17, 2018
Hambach Forest. Despite efforts to revive him, the 27-year-old German citizen died after being flown out by helicopter. Following the accident, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia's interior minister, Herbert Reul, announced that police activities in the forest would be suspended for now. "We cannot just proceed as normal at least I can't," Reul said at a press conference Wednesday night. Whether the eviction will continue is not yet known. The journalist is understood to have fallen from the bridge leading off this treehouse Read more: Hambach Forest: Battleground for climate action 'Pure sunshine' Activists and members of the public have gathered in Beechtown, one of the treehouse villages. People lay flowers on a makeshift altar, hug each other, sit on the leaf-covered forest floor and converse in whispers. Activists and citizens took time to mourn and honor the dead journalist in Hambach Forest A yellow banner hangs between two trees: "We love you and we won't forget," it reads in red letters, just a few meters from where the journalist died. Meyn had been present at the protest in the forest for months. He was working on a documentary about the occupation, he told me when I met him last week in Hambach Forest. A fellow freelance journalist with no direct assignment, but clearly strongly motivated to document what was happening on the ground. Equipped with a 360-degree camera placed on his bicycle helmet, and a big smile. To those he met, he came across as a friendly, chatty guy. Indeed, he was a friend to many activists and...https://www.dw.com/en/stillness-and-shock-in-hambach-forest-after-journalist-dies/a-45579629
Protests planned as Erdogan opens mega mosque in CologneWednesday, October 17, 2018
Kurdish demonstrators marched with banners that showed likenesses of Erdogan shooting a journalist and devouring a peace dove.
Erdogans visit on Saturday takes him to North Rhine-Westphalia state, which is home to significant numbers of ethnic Turks, many who moved to Germany as so-called guest workers from the 1960s.
Several anti-Erdogan demos are planned in Cologne on Saturday, including one under the banner Erdogan Not Welcome.
They are expected to gather a few kilometres (miles) away from the neighbourhood of the mosque.
The giant Cologne Central Mosque opened its doors in 2017 after eight years of construction and budget overruns. It can house more than a thousand worshippers.
The sheer size of the building, designed to resemble a flower bud opening, and its two towering minarets has disgruntled some locals, triggering occasional protests.
The Turkish-Islamic Union of the Institute for Religion (Ditib) that commissioned the glass and cement structure is itself not without controversy.
The group runs hundreds of mosques across Germany, and its imams are paid by the Turkish state.
Known for its close ties to Ankara, it has increasingly come under scrutiny with some of its members suspected of spying on Turkish dissidents living in Germany.
German media recently reported that the domestic intelligence service was considering putting Ditib under surveillance.
