About this product
- DescriptionWe always live in the last moment of history. No one has ever come any further in time. All ages shape their own apocalyptic vision, a way of understanding the perils and revelations that perennially surround us. Endtimes explores such visions over the last two thousand years, since John of Patmos first looked out of his window and saw FINIS written in vapour trails on the blue Aegean sky. From Roman tyrants to the persecuted Russian poet Osip Mandelstam, this sequence explores the dark side of our history, and the glories such darkness continues to provoke in our art and literature.
