This beautiful article by

This beautiful article by Jens, full of ideas and political points and lovely illustrations illustrating some of the most unlovely  events in human history.   It all makes such an impact.  But it's so well presented, and so impressive that I find it impossible  to think of anything to say about it other than thank you! 

(Though maybe I did wonder why Wilfred Owen escaped without mention while other War Poets crept in. But then the piece is about an Art exhibition.)
