Wendland: On What Makes us Human

“Far from being endowed with divine rationality that distinguishes us from the beasts, Bacon’s paintings show us just how savage our exercise of reason can be.”

Wendland‘s contribution to the Tate Britain-CPVA series ‘What makes us Human: On Anxiety’ was philosophically magnetic.  But if you missed out on that and event, you can still calm your angst, by reading Wendland‏ ‘s compelling current review of the Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud show at the Pushkin Museum in the Moscow Times.
