A Hongkong, un film montre le vrai visage des domestiques
Le choix est cruel, et part du principe que l’argent envoyé vaut mieux que la présence maternelle. Les enfants restés aux Philippines partagent rarement cet avis.

The End of ‘Civilisation’
The new program is best understood as a kind of delayed rebuttal, sometimes quite explicit, to Clark and his view of history.

An example of his method was a book the gallery published called 100 Details from Pictures in the National Gallery. Clark wanted to draw the attention of untutored viewers to specific elements in each work and place them alongside similar details from other works, with the aim of building up knowledge and interest piece by piece, element by element.

There was no stinting on travel either. By the time they were through Clark and crew had visited 118 museums and 117 other locations in 11 countries.

It was television of an intensified kind, meant to seduce a mass audience.

An act or piece of art that is life-enhancing—that allows us to have life, and to have it more abundantly—is civilized; one that isn’t isn’t.

The Greco-Roman ideal, he says, was “without doubt the most extraordinary creation in the whole of history.” It was nearly lost with the sacking of Rome—by barbarians, did he mention?—in the 5th century and then barely survived the advance of Islam in the 8th. It lay dormant, tended by monks, until the millennium, when it began to manifest itself in a variety of ways in Europe.

The Shy, Discreet Energy of Tokyo
Delano first travelled to Japan in 1993. He has spent most of the past two decades in Tokyo, documenting the city. “The megalopolis, jam-packed with shy, discreet people, creates an eccentric energy unlike any city on earth,” Delano wrote to me. He records this energy to create a collection of visual evidence that will offer future generations insight into the daily life of postmodern Japan. His vignette-style framing and use of black-and-white film recalls documentary photography at the turn of the twentieth century, and is a deliberate nod to the original, purely documentary purpose of the medium.

 Dès les années 1920, un concept redoutable a été mis au point : l'obsolescence programmée. "Un produit qui ne s'use pas est une tragédie pour les affaires", lisait-on en 1928 dans une revue spécialisée. Peu à peu, on contraint les ingénieurs à créer des
