The Dancing Plague of 1518 –

The Dancing Plague of 1518 – | Techniques et culture | Scoop.it
500 years ago this month, a strange mania seized the city of Strasbourg. Citizens by the hundreds became compelled to dance, seemingly for no reason — jigging trance-like for days, until unconsciousness or, in some cases, death. Ned Pennant-Rea on one of history's most bizarre events.

Human Forms in Nature: Ernst Haeckel’s Trip to South Asia and Its Aftermath

Human Forms in Nature: Ernst Haeckel’s Trip to South Asia and Its Aftermath | Techniques et culture | Scoop.it
An early promoter and populariser of Darwin's evolutionary theory, the German biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel was a hugely influential figure of the late 19th century. Bernd Brunner looks at how a trip to Sri Lanka sowed the seeds for not only Haeckel's majestic illustrations from his Art Forms in Nature, for which he is perhaps best known today, but also his disturbing ideas on race and eugenics.

The Time is Now: Art + Walter Benjamin

The Time is Now: Art + Walter Benjamin | Techniques et culture | Scoop.it
In early 1940, just before he attempted to escape to Spain from Vichy
France, the Marxist theorist and art critic Walter Benjamin penned his
Theses on the Concept of History. In twenty numbered paragraphs, Benjamin
sketches his vision of the task of the materialist historian. In contrast
to the historicist, whose method consists of merely adding “a mass of
facts, in order to fill up a homogeneous and empty time,” the materialist
historian employs a “constructive” method (XVII), piecing together the
“tradition of the oppressed” (VIII) from the rubble of the catastrophic
past into a “constellation” (XVII) that most accurately reflects the
fragmented character of modern reality.
