Bavarian Finance Minister and one of the most influential politicians within the Free State (and possible next CSU president) Markus Söder has made an interesting point on the developments in Munich’s cultural and creative scene. In today’s interview with the TZ he said that he is worried about the City losing many creative minds to German capital and largest city of the country Berlin.
He said: “Munich is a super city. But it worries me that we are losing a lot of creative people to Berlin. Film, TV, pop art and music are migrating to Berlin.” He made the statement in the wake of a decision on a new concert hall in Munich, where he also hopes to establish a music and arts quarter. He said that a lot more could be done in Munich. Behind Berlin and Hamburg, Munich is Germany’s third largest city.
