Art in a Time of War

By World on The Run

The New Yorker – War is the worst evil that people have inflicted upon one another, at costs to themselves, since some hominid discovered the lethal efficacy of rocks.

It is waged continually somewhere or other in every generation, furiously now, in Ukraine, and fitfully in the Middle East and Africa.

The recurring horror has paused on a global scale—holding its breath, you may feel—only because, post-Hiroshima, nuclear weaponry bodes suicide for the next power to use it. Or so we have thought, and perhaps still think, but with shaken complacency.

Great piece at The New Yorker
