NORDEN - the nordic arts festival


Stefan Rychlak in conversation with Claus Ruhe Madsen

Dry humor, cool temper, not a word too many - that's the North German. Or so they say. But we still manage to have good conversations! NORDIC TALKING is about political and personal issues. Our guests are inspiring northerners who are committed to change and Nordic cohesion - learn more about their visions, goals and how they use their very personal experiences to make the region even better: How are you shaping the North? And what is the North doing to you?

The moderator of the series is journalist STEFAN RYCHLAK. He has worked at ARD-aktuell in Hamburg for more than 20 years, and is chief of staff in the tagesschau newsroom. Rychlak works in the Hanseatic city, lives in Schleswig-Holstein and wants honest announcements at Nordic Talking: Nu ma Butter bei die Fische!

In conversation with Claus Ruhe Madsen
"Good plans alone are not enough, we must also implement them." That's what Claus Ruhe Madsen said - and he's now in exactly the right place to do it: as Minister of Economics, he sits at the levers of power in Schleswig-Holstein. Born and raised in Denmark, he moved to Germany, where he worked in a furniture store in the Ruhr region. He then moved to Rostock, where he founded his own companies, co-led the German-Danish Chamber of Industry and Commerce, among other things, and became the city's mayor in 2019.
In 2022, Schleswig-Holstein's Prime Minister Daniel Günther brought him into his cabinet: a nonpartisan Dane in one of the most important ministerial posts in northern Germany. Since this year, Madsen is also a German citizen and walks between the Nordic worlds. The perfect guest for Nordic Talking! As minister he is responsible for economy, transport, labor, technology and tourism - is that a bit much? Let's ask him!
