Our Web of Eros

The print created Renaissance personality arose at the focus of pictorial space. This flickering egoic flame then created the body dis-interested space of rationalism and interchangable parts, and in so doing savagly marginalized the erotic impulses of Western culture. The cult of "badness" arose with its connotations of dualism at every level. The bestial nature of men, the perfected nature of women, conversely the nobleness of men and the veniality of woman, the goodness of the controlled, literate upper classes and the wontonness of the lower classes. Tolerated too was the notion of the sensual, dusky foreigner or servant always assumed to be inferior to the controlled and controlling demeanor of the white ruling cl ass.

Go Hyperborea.
