The Summer's End

 

The summer’s end is upon us, the respite from a life on pause now rounded out. For many, the pandemic is in the rear view, and wars, now classified, or de/re-classified.

Pack up the beach bags and the picnic baskets. Count the incoming votes, with or without incident. Back to school, return to work, live the new normal….

On this day, August 22, The first Geneva Convention is adopted and signed by 12 nations – its plural form composed of four treaties and various protocols that establish international legal standards for humanitarian treatment in war and define the basic rights of wartime prisoners as well as establishing protections for the wounded and sick, including civilians in and around war-zones (1864).

On this day was born the American poet and writer Dorothy Parker (1893), French composer Claude Debussy (1862), and Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908), one of the founding members of Magnum Photos.

Welcome to the .133rd edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

Rencontres d’Arles 2022

In this year’s edition of Rencontres d’Arles titled Visible or Invisible, A Summer Revealed, artists are there to remind us of what we want to neither hear nor see. “It is to the visible, to images, that man turns for a radical testimony of his own being, his own nature.” Through September 25, 2022, Arles.
