7:45 pm
it's a woman's world at this year's brit awards and that is a big change last year the brits were criticized for nominating only male acts in the best album category this year there are 4 women nominated and only one male artist. starts out there do a lead but is the best known nominee in the running with her album future in astrology. it's all. going. to w culture reporter my crew goes here for more about this year's brit award nominations michael do a leap oh he's got 3 nominations this year she already won a grammy for this album is this just going to be the duleep push of maybe maybe but they also see 2 other female musicians was 3 nominations and 1st of all we have
7:46 pm
celeste she has won last year in the category rising star and and now she's nominated for best female solo artist full best and break us through artists she's a soul sensation originally from california and now she's british and she has this remarkable voice. and sound now. yes she does. she does and she's also a great songwriter as also written songs for a couple of soundtracks and also 3 nominations in the same categories for pox also newcomer from london very classic. so together was doing these strong women leading the race for the awards but has
7:47 pm
some stiff competition ok so that awards are about british music of course but there are also these international categories best international male artist best international female artist who should we watch out for there it's a bit confusing i was a bit surprised at the rw springsteen nomination because he's the old rock he's from another generation and i don't thing that so many younger ones still know him but he has good chances to win also an award by the way the record labels have a big influence over who gets nominated so of course we have the most successful artists like. taylor swift for example she has just tricked the 1000000000 mark on you tube in just a few months was her latest song ok you as a music lover as a culture journalist just briefly who do you think should win should win. is
7:48 pm
a very good word for it because i don't thing that she's going to win but i keep my fingers crops crossed full of us and she is just special. nominated for the mix solo artist and her voice is so fine deep obscure but maybe she's just not mainstream for this and we're going to have to see the brits are on may 11th michael grieco thanks so much thank you. now to a session designer elle magazine calls one of the women who defines 20th century style cloudy as skoda created net where for singers donna summer cher tina turner and david bowie now scored his hometown of berlin is celebrating her with an exhibition of her designs the show's already been postponed twice because of the coronavirus but it's now viewable online and here on t.w. arts and culture. the exhibition dressed to thrill celebrates the heady early days
7:49 pm
of how the esko does career in the 1970 s. and eighty's. the fashion designer was a key figure in west berlin underground see. her work was considered a fun card. does son of a card is what the other said i never said to myself now i'm going to be out on cards it just happened somehow. or we simply did what we want to. life and berlin was a bit freer back that and you can go about things in a playful way. and. also have. surrounded by the berlin wall and east germany west berlin was a little island of freedom claudia skoda presented her clothes in an industrial complex and in her loft in a former factory building which she called somebody you know a group of creatives who were like a family to her and lived and worked there scotus fashion shows were like
7:50 pm
happenings or performances with models who danced their way down the runway these recordings give a sense of the energy and mood of those days. even though the police energy was pushed in part by our status as a kind of island we could move around within a certain framework and then we wanted to really move a lot because there was nothing outside we wanted ever. thing to be beautiful and exciting and interesting and also meaningful but boy don't smile. david bowie and iggy pop lived in berlin in the mid 1970 s. found of course claudia skoda hung out with the city's creatives attended her runway shows musicians and artists such as martin kemp and back he put a grafter in a subway station posing with her knitting machine as if it were a guitar. photographer jim cato also took
7:51 pm
a portrait so her the other photos in the exhibition are almost all by well known artists evidence of scotus excellent connections. that we did things for the sheer pleasure of it because we just wanted to do them and i had support from all of my artist friends my fabric noyes family from everyone really but i probably couldn't have done it on my own as little cloudy or whatever it was so i thought. and so she became the great cloudy escada who makes fashion into a work of art i. makes people laugh of course but crew for groups that face oppression they can also be a way to process trauma here in germany a group of jewish cartoonists and humorists are using jokes to cope with discrimination the book is ironically called anti semitism for beginners.
7:52 pm
that's art mr goldberg your count is in the red surprising given your surname. you're converting to judaism why we want to become part of the global conspiracy these are some of the city cartoons founded miriam hubbard scientology anti-semitism for beginners which pokes fun at anti jewish stereotypes the new york born writer of jewish descent who has german roots came up with the book project at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. immediately old conspiracy theories started circulating like the jews are to blame for the coronavirus that really bothered me. so i told myself i no longer want to get angry i want to laugh about this instead. we're at berlin's jewish look at 200 long book store books from our yellow publishing house germany's 1st jewish publisher of
7:53 pm
children's books are on sale here. founded 11 years ago these days she's also releasing books for adults like the kosher comics. who for more. jewish humor takes a difficult or a sad situation or what have you. and exaggerates it or adopts a new perspective on it. and that creates a sense of relief. come on in russian she wish novelist but in your community has lived in berlin for 30 years has humorous works about everyday life of one of millions of fans he contributed a satirical text hypers times and says humor is perfect for countering anti-semitic conspiracy theories. the focus ring of course but it's
7:54 pm
a nice fantasy imagining our planet is not simply circle about someone who's actually directing communicating and controlling everything. but i don't think it's the jews. at least not those i know. the bestselling author says the humor in his novels stems from the train tragic scene. is that of course remaining detached is key. i've always had this detachment from the world given my jewish roots which i never chose. we were always treated like strangers we were always outsiders kind of like living in a guest house gulf but that i believe has helped me over the years ago out of the good quote from you know i'm sorry jokes about jews and jewish humor are not the same thing. and.
7:55 pm
so it's good to be on come out performing the jews are to blame a satirical song written in 1931 by clearly holland mocking the nazis anti semitism . holland german composer and humorist of jewish descent was later forced to flee to the us. holland square has been named in his honor vivian khanna often performs holland she's also contributed a satirical text to me on the high pitched arms and colleges. and deal with it whether it's a virus spreading or a runny nose whether it's a failed relief package or a heavy cough whether it's climate change or rising sea levels whether it's a prolonged holiday or wages being cut the jews are to blame the jews are to blame for everything and i'm sure she says humor is the best way to tackle anti semitism . because it's so grotesque and absurd that 75 years after the end of the war we're
7:56 pm
still asking ourselves have people learned from the past and you feel that no they haven't that's why miriam her book is so fantastic because at the end of the day laughing is the best medicine and it's the best the middle c. and. so miriam had the stamp plans to continue publishing books that provide a humorous and lighthearted take on jewish life. for more arts and culture news check us out at d.f.w. dot com slash culture but for now i'll leave you with some images from spain where traditional perceptions ahead of easter have been canceled now for a 2nd year in a row to the coronavirus well some people in the city of. holy week exhibition and stud see you next time.

this is the news live from the united nations walt warns f. full scale civil war could break out in myanmar the u.n. says a block but is imminent as the army ramps up its deadly crackdown on protesters. also coming up a chilling verdict on freedom in a home called high profile activists convicted of a lawful assembly. face years in prison we visit a campaigner who's spent a lifetime fighting for democracy in china.
8:01 pm
as welcome to the program and we begin with the 1000000 man and growing international concern over the conflict between the military regime and pro-democracy activists the un special envoy has warned of a possible civil war and says a bloodbath is in minutes of an tensions escalating crowds are still gathering every day despite the deaths of more than 500 people killed by security forces the latest escalation aircraft have bombed positions held by the carrier an ethnic minority for the 1st time in 2 decades meanwhile the deposed civilian leader aung san suu kyi has been charged with violating a colonial era secrets law. and war we're now joined by journalist dave from kuala lumpur malaysia dave concert c 3 of her deposed cabinet members as well
8:02 pm
as an australian advisor all charged with violating the official secrets law what do you make of that. yes so them as well as on some suchi to well this is a colonial era law and the way these chloe era laws and miasma are 30 written away that are so broad and it's so vague that you can twist and turn them to make just about anything a file ation and that's you know we don't know the specifics of what she allegedly did here that would lead to these charges or same goes for all of them but they can these clinton era laws are in to make it easy to make almost anything a violation and look she was charged a week ago according to her chief lawyer and her chief lawyer just found out about it 2 days ago so it just shows you how ridiculous the system is a man on the m.r. does not have an independent judiciary so the military in the end can bend and twist things to get the result but they want. a u.n. envoy has warned that may be on the brink of a civil war that's serious. when you look at how the situation has
8:03 pm
deteriorated during the past few weeks the massive uptick in violence the security forces attacks largely on unarmed civilians. now you may see more armed ethnic groups potentially getting involved the fight different fronts the fact that students and office workers from the main cities have been going to the jungles to get a sense a crash courses in guerrilla warfare all of this just shows you that this really does have the potential to turn into a full blown civil war how quickly we get there is a little difficult to say but as this develops we could suddenly be looking at suit shortages. the public health care system in myanmar which even before the pandemic was greatly under resourced well now it's barely functioning that could get much worse. this it could absolutely turn into a complete humanitarian disaster and me and our country who just
8:04 pm
a couple years ago people were talking about the potential for a while now we have to wonder if it's going to turn into a failed state before it does what would it take at this point to resolve this crisis is that any chance for talks a dialogue. there's still time but the countries that haven't you know taken the steps are taking steps necessary to do that so many haven't done that yet and time is running out if you look at the u.n. security council well you seem strong steps being pushed from western countries u.s. u.k. france but to other countries that have veto power russia and china have not allowed any strong actually come out of the u.n. security council would either of those countries do anything individually china could make a difference here china's got some leverage here but china doesn't seem to have an interest in doing that they haven't shown that yet the association of southeast asian nations which to me m.r. is a member of they could they could have some real impact here they've generally had
8:05 pm
a policy of noninterference in each other's internal affairs but lately we're seeing stronger statements coming out of members such as singapore indonesia philippines malaysia thailand but they're going to have to really do more and they going to have to step up the pressure politically soon if it's going to make a difference. from kuala lumpur malaysia thank you very much for this as mine. a court in hong kong has convicted 7 prominent pro-democracy activists and politicians for their role in anti-government protests in 2019 sentencing of the group will take place at a later date but they could face up to 5 years in prison 2 other defendants had previously pleaded guilty. well those convicted on thursday include the man known as hong kong's father of democracy martin lee he is the 82 year old co-founder of the democratic party also 73 year old media tycoon jimmy lie he's one

8:09 pm
a lot types it's like we're stepping into a winter storm that every one of us has to face it and possibly the boat tends to light lol but if someone is still missing they will receive serious repercussion but i don't think that will kill all the determination of us fighting for democracy i think many of us have already been joe and see it as one of a cost that worth to pay on the role of struggle so i think many of them actually have to mental preparation for that and for the rule of law and on call it's all gone under the national security law and people's freedom of expression and freedom of association being all and not only to it so i think that is a sad reality of own home. now the laws begin there now let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world at this hour
