ARTPIL / Prescription .070
11th hour, 11th day, 11th month

 

Today is Armistice Day. In the U.S. renamed Veterans Day and observed as Remembrance Day in the Commonwealth of Nations member states such as Canada, Australia, India, or otherwise mostly former territories of the British Empire.

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, precisely one-hundred years ago today, the treaty signed in France between the Allied forces of World War I and Germany, and the official peace agreement reached, The Treaty of Versailles, the following year.

The world has seen, of course, upwards of some 300 wars since then, according to various data by Correlates of War, PRIO / The Battle Deaths Dataset & Department of Peace and Conflict Research… But who’s counting?

Welcome to the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the year, and our .070th edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
