ARTPIL / Prescription .108
Second Face of Janus

 

Welcome to another edition of ARTPIL’s Prescription. Today we are January 13 and well into the New Year 2020. We will have to see if our vision for the year is worthy of its namesake.

Today in history we saw the first issue of The Times of London published (1785); Richard Wagner completes his opera Parsifal (1882); British Independent Labour Party forms (1893); Emile Zola publishes his open letter J’accuse denouncing the French government for wrongdoing (1898); A tremendous earthquake in Avezzano in Italy kills an estimated 30,000 people (1915);  Samuel Beckett’s radio play All that Fall airs on BBC (1957); 9,000 scientists of 43 nations join to petition the United Nations to ban nuclear testing (1958).

Welcome to the .108th edition of Prescriptions. Stay with us as we enter the second phase of the month of Janus. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
