Double anniversary – Mondrago’s and the Salon’s.
The Influence of Oriental and Far Eastern Culture on Western Europe in the Nineteenth Century
With the acceleration of technological advancement and the ensuing expansion of European power across the globe in the Nineteenth Century, cultural exchange between “the West” and “the East” likewise began to accelerate. This gave rise to “Orientalism,” which had a profound impact on European culture with echoes that last through to today. Please join Magistrate Lucien Brentano at the Aether Salon on October 19 for a small treatise on the history and forms of Orientalism in European cultures.
