World Building – Norman Klein
An archaeology of our Feudal Condition: Where did it begin and where does it end? Since 1973, beginning particularly in the United States, an urban industrial feudalism has steadily emerged—or rather, a feudalistic pluralism. This pluralism is filled with atavisms and potential. On the one hand, many unregulated oligarchies prey upon us at once. On the other, voids left by the declining nation state incubate new forms. Indeed, the next twenty years will tell the tale.

Art, Death and the Telegraph
The electrical telegraph is the root of all modern forms of telecommunication. It was developed not by a scientist or even an entrepreneur but by a visual artist, Samuel Morse. The story of how he came to do this is fascinating, and shows the origins of the “vanguard impulse” in painting long before it became visible stylistically. Morse‘s life and achievements shed light on many forgotten aspects of 19th century culture and show how media and art can fertilise each other.
