Gallery of the Bizarre: Antique Costumes, Sexist Mid-century Ads and Bonus Collages
History speaks to artists. It changes the artist's thinking and is constantly reshaping it into different and unexpected images
We will never be able to fully, thoroughly and wholly understand the past. Regardless of whatever monumental knowledge we might have about history, religion and geography. We will always be, no mater how hard we try, observers out of context.
Inevitably sooner or later our thoughts will betray us and we will fail; judging over the shoulders of the privileges and beliefs our times provide us. This judgment is however suitable and advantageous to the development of our society and our own behavior, for it coaches us in the most gentle of ways; by example.
The gallery I introduce today is purely historical, rare and, at times, bewildering. May you enjoy
